Fr. Wasson Legacy Endowment, Inc.

Fr. Wasson at NPH Mexico, 2003.Established in 1995, FR. WASSON LEGACY ENDOWMENT INC. (FWLEI) is a separate 501(c)(3) Delaware nonstock corporation, Federal ID #91-2005679. The purpose and mission of FWLEI is to create a substantial and growing financial corpus (the Endowment) that will generate income and help provide long term financial stability for Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters"). FWLEI continues to grow through donor contributions and responsible, successful investment.

FWLEI is governed by a Board of Directors which has established a yearly distribution policy intended to provide a consistent annual contribution to NPH USA for the benefit of the children of NPH. This policy also allows FWLEI to respond quickly and significantly in times of tragedy. 

For distribution purposes, only the income generated by the endowment may be considered available. The corpus is inviolate with one exception. If the FWLEI Board of Directors unanimously determines that one or more of the NPH homes are unable to function as the result of extensive destruction of property or life due to a major natural disaster, and only after the Board is satisfied that all other available funds have been exhausted, then a distribution of the corpus may be considered. An individual donor, however, has the option at the time of his/her gift to require the gift be held in the corpus in perpetuity.

Gifts to FWLEI are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Donors wishing to contribute to FWLEI may do so securely online or by sending their gift directly to one of the NPH USA regional offices. Gifts should be made payable to NPH USA in support of the Fr. Wasson Legacy Endowment Fund, Inc.

Contributions may be made to four separate funds within the endowment. These funds can be made in honor or in memory of a loved one.

  1. The General Fund. This fund supports the basic needs of all the children at all nine NPH homes, in perpetuity. 
     
  2. The Sponsorship Fund. This fund will provide sponsorship support in perpetuity in honor of a specific Godchild(ren) and future children even after the donor is deceased. 
     
  3. The Medical Fund. This fund will provide for medication, immunizations, and special medical needs of the children of NPH in perpetuity. 
     
  4. The Education Fund. This fund will support the educational needs of the children of NPH, including university students, in perpetuity. Donations to this fund can be made in honor of a specific Godchild(ren) at NPH.
FWLEI investments are managed by professional fund managers under the direction of FWLEI’s Board of Directors. The governing documents and audit of FWLEI, Federal ID #91-2005679, are available upon request.
