Priests Pension Fund

The Priests’ Pension Fund Society of the Diocese of Des Moines is a 501(c)3 corporation established in 1948 with two specific purposes:

  1. To provide a pension benefit for retired priests of the Diocese of Des Moines.
  2. To provide for special needs of the priests of the Diocese (usually extraordinary health care needs or living needs when the priest’s own assets are exhausted).

There are two components of the Pension Fund Society: a pension fund established and administered by Principal Financial and a Contingency Fund for special needs.

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