2023 DSA Goal


Our Diocesan Services Appeal is one opportunity to exhibit discipleship – to share the Good News with others and to offer loving support in the many good works of the Catholic Church.

We are pleased to offer a recurring monthly gift option!

Many have asked for an easy way to make an ongoing monthly gift to DSA as they currently do for their parish offertory gift. We’re pleased to offer that option this year! Simply go to

WWW.DIOCESEOFLANSING.ORG/APPEAL to make a recurring monthly contribution until you choose to stop. Thank you!

Gifts of Stock, from your IRA, or from your Donor Advised Fund

You can make your DSA contribution in the form of a stock gift, a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA, or a distribution from your donor advised fund.

Stock may be transferred to The Catholic Foundation without recognizing gains on the appreciated value. Qualified charitable distributions from your IRA may be transferred to The Catholic Foundation without being subject to income taxes. Consult your tax advisor about these opportunities. The Catholic Foundation is also eligible to receive donor advised fund distributions.

Prior to making your gift, please contact Isaac Owen at 517.253.8742 or for information you or your administrator may need to complete your DSA gift.

Matching Gifts

You can double or, in some cases, triple your gift to DSA by taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift program. Each company has its own guidelines as to how much and in what time frame it will donate. Be sure to check with your employer’s human resources department for information and the appropriate matching gift forms. Once you have completed the forms correctly, send them to: The Catholic Foundation, 101 S. Washington Sq., Suite 620, Lansing, MI 48933.

Electronic Giving

Many people prefer the convenience of using a credit card or making a direct debit from a bank account for DSA giving. You can make your DSA gift with VISA, MasterCard or Discover.

Simply make your gift online at

Pledge gifts

Stretching your payments makes it easier than ever to contribute generously to the DSA. Again this year, donors to DSA can take advantage of an extended number of months to complete their pledge.

Gifts of cash

You can make a cash donation through your parish, or make a check payable to “your parish name/DSA” and mail it to The Catholic Foundation, 101 S. Washington Sq., Suite 620, Lansing, MI 48933.
