Donating Blessed Objects

I want to know if it is ok for us to donate a blessed object (rosary) to a charity to be auctioned off as part of a fund raiser.

I can’t seem to find a concise answer.

Many thanks!

I would not. Seems too much like selling.

Remember too that if a blessed sacramental does get sold - it looses the indulgences.

Only if the fund raiser is for a Catholic School or the parish, by all means donate it if it is particularly fine. I donate many blessed framed prints, and handmade rosaries to such, and people always are thrilled to support the Church AND receiving something religious for their home.
It’s not selling.

Donate it to your church, just to be sure it goes to the ‘proper’ home!

Thanks for the replies - this is for both the Church and our Catholic school.
