Christ the King Parish - Des Moines, IA

Foundation Fund

The Foundation, formerly the “Planned Giving Fund” was established in the mid-1990s when a group of parishioners, concerned about the future of the parish, set out to investigate the options that would meet the future financial needs of the parish.

The mission of the foundation is to provide and maintain a Christ-centered environment for our Parish and its ministries. This includes the enhancement and support of the formational opportunities as well as financing new initiatives to assist all parishioners in their intellectual and spiritual development.

Today our Foundation has over $850,000.00 in restricted assets, which allows the Foundation to fund Christ the King Parish ministries and outreach programs, which are not funded by normal tithing.  This past year the Foundation has provided funds to the Library, Youth Ministry, St. Vincent de Paul, Tanzania Project, The Catalyst Project – Millennials, and the Totus Tuus Summer Camp.

The recommended minimum donation for this fund is $25. Typical donation amounts are $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more. Thank you!
