Monsignor John T. Gulczynski, the founding pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish and School, established an Endowment Trust Fund in 1982 to provide an ongoing investment to enhance educational experiences of our School and Parish.

Since its beginning, the Endowment Trust Fund - using only 85% of its interest income - has funded a multitude of educational enhancements; computer labs, software, science labs, art kilns, grade level reading programs, audio visual equipment, classroom materials, reference books, and other enhancements.

The Endowment Trust Fund has grown into an investment in excess of $1 million. Over the years, contributions have been from many parishioners and friends who wish their donations to be more than a budgeted item for the year, but rather an ongoing investment for the school and parish.

Ways to contribute:

  • Yearly direct donations
  • Memorials/honorariums from families, living and departed,
  • Specifically designated gifts to the Gap Drive (Annual Giving),
  • Bequests from family estate planning

The Endowment Trust Fund is structured as a separate trust according to current charity trust laws in the State of Texas and is separate from any other investments within St. Thomas Aquinas Parish and from the Catholic Diocese of Dallas. As only a portion of the annual income earned can be spent on enhancements during the year, as recommended by an Advisory Board, the balance is reinvested into the Trust.

A Board of Trustees oversees the operation of the Trust and the investments of the Trust are managed by a independent investment trust company.

If you would like to contribute directly to the Endowment Fund, checks should be made out to MJTG Endowment Fund and mailed to the St. Thomas Aquinas Church rectory at 6306 Kenwood Ave, Dallas, Texas, 75214 or the school office, 3741 Abrams Road, Dallas, Texas 75214.

The Endowment Fund continues to grow from your contributions. If you would like to speak with someone concerning an investment, please call the Church office at 214-821-3360. A Trustee will return your call to assist you.
