A note from our President-The Power of Endowment:

Louise Buhrer, a 5th generation Swiss immigrant and a very special donor, was active in Catholic causes and would want us to share her story with you. Louise established a Charitable Remainder Unitrust with The Catholic Foundation using stocks/bonds and her home totaling $777,000.  She received income in excess of $370,000 from this fund throughout her lifetime, and it became a permanent endowment upon her death in 2000. To date, the fund she established has provided $2.3 million in grants to Ursuline Academy of Dallas, Dallas Catholic Schools for education and tuition assistance, and the Dallas Catholic elderly.  As her endowment continues to grow, her legacy will continue long into the future. Today the Louise Buhrer Endowment Trust is valued at over $6.9 million.Louise Buhrer
