ANNUAL FUND: The Annual Fund at Camp Shalom has helped carry the burden of general operating expenses for many years. Without the Annual Fund, it could become prohibitively expensive for campers, and the benefit of a having a full-time staff might be difficult to maintain. Without continued, strong support of the Annual Fund, Camp Shalom would have a difficult time surviving as an independent, non-denominational ministry.

BIRDIES FOR CHARITY: Birdies for Charity is an easy way to guarantee your gift to Camp Shalom goes even further. In 2014 Birdies paid out a 10% bonus on donations made through their giving program. Camp Shalom receives its donated dollars faster through the Birdies program than they do through other giving conduits, making it an even better idea.

CAMP SHALOM ENDOWMENT: No other giving program could be easier, more important, or hurt less. The proper size endowment for Camp Shalom would be around $1.5 million. It is currently less than $50,000. At the correct size the endowment would help underwrite summer camp tuition assistance and most mid-size capital improvements and major repairs. It may take years to grow the endowment fund to where it is able to substantially help camp, but good things take time. Consider making Camp Shalom part of your legacy by assigning a portion of a life insurance policy or by making camp a part of your estate.
THRIVENT CHOICE: The Thrivent Choice program lets members recommend where some of the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans' charitable outreach funds go by directing Choice Dollars. Thrivent Choice continues to be a welcome funding source for Camp Shalom Christian Camp. Contact a representative to learn more.
