Defined as "continuing unlimited in time", a perpetual fund (also referred to as an endowment fund) consists of a sum of money gifted to a charity by a donor who wishes to provide it with a never-ending source of revenue. The fund is usually named in memory of loved ones or after the donors themselves. By using only the interest income and never reducing the capital portion of the fund, a charity is assured that a certain amount of support will come its way year after year. Perpetual funds are testimonies of profound love for special people in one's life.

If you would like to make a gift in the form of a perpetual fund, would you please indicate the following in your letter:

This gift of $___________is given by (your name and address) to The Call of the Poor Inc., under the specific instruction that it be held by the said charity for a period of not less than ten (10) years.

This stipulation will result in the guarantee that your kind gesture can be used in perpetuity for the well-being of God's poor.
