Unrestricted Gifts

An unrestricted gift to the Diocese of Raleigh is a contribution upon which a donor places no restrictions. These gifts provide flexibility for the Bishop to meet the unexpected needs of our fast-growing Diocese throughout the year.

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is the most effective avenue in which these gifts make a difference. The ministries it supports includes: Seminarians and Vocations, Marriage, Family and Respect Life, Catholic Charities, Ministry Support, and Christian Education.

Stock Donations

Gifts of stock may be made via electronic transfer. Please complete one of the applicable stock forms below enabling the diocese to identify the proper donor of the electronically transferred stock.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.

If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF's sponsoring organization is participating).
