The St. Joseph’s Villa Foundation encourages, receives and stewards gifts, grants, bequests and other types of planned gifts to provide long-term funding for Villa services. In addition to receiving such gifts and recognizing their donors, the Foundation manages these funds as endowments or other assets.
Today the Foundation, with a corpus in the mid-$20 million range, is comprised of assets from:
Proceeds from the Foundation contribute about 10% of the Villa’s annual operating revenue. Investment proceeds are allocated specifically according to donors’ original intentions.
Through donor support and continued market growth, the Foundation seeks to increase its impact on the lives of children and families the Villa serves.
The Foundation is overseen by its Board of Directors. Board members bring knowledge and strengths from their notable professional backgrounds, which include law, investments, banking and business management. These volunteer leaders actively engage in setting investment and spending policies, monitoring of investment performance, development and interpretation of gift acceptance policies, marketing, relationship building, and recognition of donors.
