The FCSE endowments generates 4% annually for the Catholic Secondary Schools based on a three (3) average rolling average of the endowed fund's yield.

All Foundation funds are invested in the Catholic Foundation of West Michigan, which invests their funds with The Michigan Catholic Conference. This is a pooled income fund with all six (6) Catholic Dioceses in the State of Michigan; consequently, we are earning a higher yield on our investments.
