Your Support is Crucial​

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.


Young Life is a non-profit organization and relies heavily on its volunteers and on fundraising. Throughout the year Raleigh Young Life has several big fundraising events. These include our fundraising banquet in the fall and a golf tournament and a 5K race in the spring. 

Make a stock gift

Want to donate stocks?  Donating stocks is a great way to avoid capital gains taxes.  Ask your broker to make an electronic transfer of the shares to Young Life's Merrill Lynch Colorado Springs account #428-04A61.  The DTC number is 5198, and it is needed if the stock is currently in an account with a company other than Merrill Lynch.  Once the stock is transferred to Young Life's account, we will receive notification of the transfer, and a receipt will be sent to you.  The effective date of the gift for this method is the date the shares are placed into our account.  Please contact the Young Life stock accountant at (719) 381-1979 or to advise us that the gift has been made.

***Please make sure that your gift is designated to "Catawba Valley Young Life NC21***
