Thank you for your question.
In which State was the endowment fund set up?
Is the fund in the form of a trust, a nonprofit corporation, or something else.
Was the endowment created under the Will of the donor?
Do you have a copy of the terms of the endowment?

Michigan
nonprofit corp
not under the will of the donor , but for the sole used of the parish not the diocese.
It is part of the endowment that the diocese set up. An umbrella policy under which all endowment funds are handled.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Under the terms of the endowment we can take out 5.4% on an annual basis for the use of the parish.
These are the only terms under which the parish is restricted. The question is then, can the diocese tax the 5.4%
that the parish receives on an annual basis?
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
I am going to opt out and see if a Michigan Expert can answer this.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
