Holy Rosary School Endowment Foundation


Mission:  The Holy Rosary School Endowment Foundation (HRSEF) was incorporated as an Idaho Non-Profit Corporation in 1984 to promote Holy Rosary School (HRS) and its long-term financial security.  A primary function of this Foundation has been to acquire financial assets from which derived earnings can be disbursed to Holy Rosary School.  These contributions can be used to assist in the development of educational programs, the payment of tuition (e.g., contribution to HRS scholarships), or the payment of other educational assistance.


Foundation Assets:  As of July 31, 2013, the assets of the HRSEF are $665,990.  These assets are invested with Merrill Lynch (ML) and are managed by a ML Certified Financial Manager (CFM) as per guidelines established by the HRSEF Board of Directors.


Benefit to Holy Rosary School:  Since 2006, the total HRSEF contribution to Holy Rosary School has been $139,242
