THE CARL E. THOMAS ENDOWMENT FUND

A ministry like Samaritas needs sustained support to carry out its mission.

The Samaritas Foundation was established to assure ongoing funding for Samaritas programs through endowment. When a donor’s gift goes into the endowment, the earnings are used but the principal remains intact, continuing to earn interest. Gifts to the endowment are perpetual, and continue to support the Samaritas mission year after year.

Carl E. Thomas, the president/CEO from 1973 to 1999, steered the organization through tremendous growth. As a tribute, the board established the Carl E. Thomas Endowment Fund, which is managed today by the Samaritas Foundation. Earnings from the Carl E. Thomas Endowment Fund support Samaritas programs across the state. Other Samaritas Foundation Endowment funds include: Wilsterman Fund, Gregersen Fund, Nussdorfer Fund, Holle Fund and Meints Funds.

Gifts may be made directly to the fund, or you may choose to name the Samaritas Foundation in your will, trust or as an insurance benficiary. To learn how you can create a legacy, please call the Samaritas Development Department at (313) 308-8860.
