SCHOOL ENDOWMENT FOUNDATION
The purpose of this foundation is to support and assist Our Lady of Perpetual Help in its educational mission by providing supplemental funding for existing and future programs and services such as: education enhancement, student scholarships and the continued existence of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Donations become a perpetual investment because only the interest of the endowment is used not the principal. The foundation consists of a Board of Trustees, the pastor and the school principal.
