We are all asked to give witness to the Faith we have received so that others might share the joy we know. One important way we do this is by supporting our local parish as it does the work of inviting people to know, love and serve the True God.
Every parish must rely on the regular financial support of its members in order to fulfill this mission. Our parish – with a largely non-residential territory and a rapidly changing population – has a special challenge in this regard. Each fall, all the people of the parish are asked to renew their commitment to support the parish in the coming year.
The Cathedral Parish of St. Raphael in Madison, Wisconsin, has established an endowment fund through the Catholic Diocese of Madison Foundation (CDMF). The endowment fund is a permanent investment fund from which a 5% allocation is paid annually to support the life and programs of the Cathedral Parish. The contributions to the fund are never spent, and the fund is insulated from any legal claims against the parish or diocese. Donors can be assured that their gifts will be a permanent legacy to support the work of the Church in downtown Madison. All donations made to the Cathedral Parish Endowment Fund (CPEF) are tax deductible.
