Ways to Give
Online through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Gifts made to Newman through UNC receive credit with the University and make their way directly to us within days. The University does not charge a fee, and giving through UNC opens the door to Matching Gifts through employers that have a matching gift program.
Online using FaithDirect
Gifts made directly to Newman using FaithDirect can be one-time or recurring, and can be made using a credit card or checking account. Parishioners are able to add a gift to the Newman Annual Fund as part of their regular offertory giving account.
You can make a gift through UNC to Newman by calling the Office of Gift Services at 919-537-3818. Reference the Newman Catholic Student Center Parish Fund (606373) in the Student Affairs unit.
You can make a gift directly to Newman by calling our Pastoral Associate for Community Development, at 919-929-3730 or email Giving at Newman.
Ways to Serve
Gleaning means harvesting what is left over after the farmer has harvested all that is profitable to harvest.
Over 20% of all food in the United States never makes it to a table. Because there is food insecurity here in our community, the Society of St. Andrew is given the opportunity to save tons of food crops from private farms and make them available to local agencies who serve needy people, and rely on volunteers to harvest these crops.
UNC FOOD RECOVERY NETWORK
American colleges waste 22 million pounds of food a year. At the same time, 1 in 6 Americans don’t know where their next meal is coming from. The UNC Food Recovery Network in Chapel Hill is dedicated to fighting food waste and hunger in the Triangle. Our members recover leftover food from the dining halls and donate it to shelters in the surrounding area.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Habitat for Humanity offers home ownership to Orange County families who otherwise may not have the opportunity to own a home of their own. Volunteer labor is used to build homes to keep costs low for Habitat families. Building/construction skills are not required! The Newman Center helps to fund and build a Habitat House here in Orange County.
The Newman Youth Ministry is sponsoring the Angel Tree project! Angel Tree is an annual collection initiative to provide holiday gifts to low-income children. Ornaments on the tree have a child's name and a Christmas wish list. Sponsors will be provided gender/sizing information to shop with. Human “angels” take the tag, go shopping, and return the unwrapped gift in time for Christmas.
