Yo​ur 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. 

Donating Stocks​

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 into 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 emailstockgifts@sc.younglife.org to advise us that the gift has been made.  

*** Please make sure that your gift is designated to “Raleigh Young Life NC28" ***​


Fall Banquet

In the fall the area has a banquet hosted by the Marriott. The banquet provides a place for adults to come and get a feel of what really Young Life is and hear testimonies of kids that have been impacted through Young Life. If you are interested in coming to one of the banquets or in hosting a table please contact us at raleighyl@gmail.com.

Golf Tournament

In the spring the area has the golf tournament, which in years past has been hosted by the Raleigh Country Club.  This is an event for golfers to come and enjoy a round of golf with the chance or winning several prizes.   After a morning of golf all the players will get to enjoy a delicious lunch provided by the country club and they get to hear a little about Young Life.  If you are interested in playing in the tournament or donating any prizes please contact us at raleighyl@gmail.com.

5k Race​

Also in the spring we will have a 5K race hosted by the Wake Med Soccer Park. This is a great race to enter for both competition and just for fun. There are lots of prizes, official time keepers, live entertainment, and free food after the event. All the proceeds from the 5K go to sending high school kids to camp. This is a great way to have fun and support Young Life while you are at it! If you are interested in more information on how you can run or sponsor this event in any way, please contact us at raleighyl@gmail.com.
