Honorarium & Memorial Gifts
If you are interested in making a donation in memory or honor of a loved one, we would love to hear from you.
There are various ways to contribute a planned gift to the Durham Rescue Mission. Choose from:
Stocks & Bonds
Did you know that your stocks and bonds may actually be worth more as charitable donations? Because of the tax deduction you’ll receive, donating your stocks and bonds to the Durham Rescue Mission can be a simple way to benefit you and our nonprofit ministry.
Donating real estate to our homeless shelters in the Triangle area is a great way to benefit our ministry and provide you with a tax deduction based on the current market value of your property.
Estate Planning & Wills
Incorporate us into your estate planning and will to provide our Durham, NC, urban rescue mission’s programs, services, and clients with benefits that will last your lifetime and beyond.
Protect your assets, cut estate settlement costs and reduce taxes with a trust donation to the Durham Rescue Mission. A trust enables you to create a financial plan that meets not only your own current needs, but ultimately the needs of beneficiaries who survive you. Choose from:
- Living Trust
- Testamentary Trust
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Charitable Lead Trust
Thrift Store Donations
The Durham Rescue Mission/Rescue Missions Ministries Thrift Store accepts a variety of gently-used items including clothes, shoes, antiques, books, CDs, collectibles, computers, dishes, DVDs, flatware, furniture, lamps, linens, pots, pans, records, rugs, small appliances, toys, vases, videos and much more.
In-kind donations are completely tax-deductible and can be dropped off at any one of our thrift store locations in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, or Wake Forest.
If you are ready to trade in your car, boat, jet ski, camper, or motorcycle, consider donating it to Durham Rescue Mission Auto Sales & Storage instead! Not only is donating your vehicle easy and hassle-free, but it’s also 100% tax-deductible — and the sale of each car donated goes to support the men, women, and children of our urban rescue mission in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.
Operation Daily Bread
Ensure that the Durham Rescue Mission has a regular, dependable flow of income all year to help the homeless of the Triangle — even in the months where other donations drop — by partnering with the Mission’s Operation Daily Bread program. Sponsorships contribute significantly to the daily operating expenses of our Durham, NC, homeless shelters which include electricity, heat, food, and maintenance costs among others.
