Stewardship and Development

The Office of Stewardship and Development of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany conducts the annual Bishop’s Appeal and coordinates the majority of diocesan fundraising initiatives, including increased offertory programs and capital campaigns for parishes.   

Ways to Give

The Bishop’s Appeal – The diocese’s annual fund which provides 70% of the support needed to serve the People of God in the fourteen counties of the Diocese of Albany. 

Planned Giving – Through the Foundation, whose purpose is to preserve and enhance the mission of the diocese, its parishes, Catholic Charities programs and agencies, Catholic schools and other “formation” programs through the building of long-term endowment funds through the generous ongoing support of the Catholic faithful and other friends of the Church.
