Endowment & Planned Giving

Leave a Legacy


An endowment provides Jeremiah Program with a solid financial foundation and a steady stream of income into perpetuity. Endowment gifts are invested and help us transform families for generations to come. Endowment gifts can be undesignated or earmarked for specific campuses or purposes.

An endowment gift allows a donor to support Jeremiah Program by leaving a legacy beyond his or her lifetime. For more information about making a gift to the Jeremiah Program endowment or establishing a separate fund to support our mission, call 612-259-3039.

The society is named in honor of our Visionary Founder, Rev. Michael J. O’Connell, who every day inspires the community to embrace our purpose of changing women’s lives for their children’s future.
