Annual Catholic Appeal – Ways to Give




Gifts to the Annual Catholic Appeal will be acknowledged by Bishop Malooly and are tax deductible as provided by law. All funds raised through the Appeal are used exclusively to support specified ministries.

Pledging: You may make a pledge and pay in monthly installments. A monthly reminder statement will be sent until your gift is fulfilled. Pledges for the current 2015 campaign are to be completed by December 31, 2015.

One-time Gift: If you prefer to offer a one-time gift, you can do so with an outright payment.

Matching Gifts: Many companies provide a Matching Gift Program for their current and retired employees to promote charitable giving. Please contact your company’s Human Resource Department to determine if a matching gift program is available.

Gifts of Securities: If you own securities that have appreciated in value, they can be given to the Appeal and their full market value becomes a tax deductible gift. Contact the diocesan Development Office at 302-573-3120 for more detail.

NOTE: Instructions may vary by transaction type, i.e. mutual fund, shares held in an investment fund or registered with Computershare Investor Services.  Be sure to contact the Development Office to ensure proper transfer of funds and appropriate credit to you as the donor.

Online Bill Pay: If you utilize this electronic technique to pay bills, simply add the Annual Catholic Appeal as a recurring payee.
Payments should be mailed to:
