Where Your Gift Is Needed

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 needs of our fast-growing Diocese. These types of gifts also provide the Bishop with funds for unexpected needs throughout the year. Unrestricted funds are extremely important because so many needs cannot be anticipated and do not fall within specific ministries.

Restricted Gifts

A restricted gift is one in which a donor indicates that gifted funds should be used for a specific purpose. Below is a list of specific areas in which your gift will make a difference.
