Monthly Recurring Donations
Lutherlyn's Monthly Giving program allows you to support Lutherlyn securely, conveniently, and in the way that best fits your budget.
How does Monthly Giving help Lutherlyn?
Though our Summer Camp programs run for two months each year, Lutherlyn's facilities are operational year round. Programs like Environmental Education, Adventure/Team Building, Equestrian Center, and Retreats all operate for the remainder of the year. These programs not only help cover the cost of maintaining our buildings, outdoor spaces, and grounds but also help us share Lutherlyn with thousands of new people annually.
We're also preparing for Summer Camp at various times throughout the year. Our staff spends a lot of time working to make the following summer's camp programs happen. We begin scheduling volunteers and recruiting summer staffers in January and running their background checks. Our grounds crew spends a lot of time making small and large repairs and updates in our cabins and meeting spaces.
What amount should my monthly gift be?
A monthly gift of $10 could provide:
- one whole day of a camper's experience at Summer Camp
- breakfast in bed for a whole unit (we still use the same recipe for coffee cake)
A monthly gift of $25 could provide:
- Bible study curriculum for the summer
- grain and hay for our horses for a week of Horse Camp
- repaired benches at a fire circle
A monthly gift of $50 could provide:
- all the background checks needed for the whole summer staff
- a week's salary, room & board, and necessary workers comp insurance for a Summer Camp counselor
- a whole week of Summer Camp for a camper
A monthly gift of $100 could provide:
- a summer's worth of Health Hut supplies
- bed bug infestation prevention
- safety harnesses and helmets for our Adventure program
A monthly gift of $250 could provide:
- CPR & First Aid certifications for all necessary Summer Staff members
- carpet replacement for a whole cabin
- a whole week of Summer Camp for five campers
As you can see gifts of any amount help Lutherlyn and our campers! Your gift can be any amount that suits you and your budget. Monthly gifts of $8.35 or more also ensure your Trinity Pines Club membership for the year!
Due to the fees associated with processing your gifts we request that monthly gift amounts be a minimum of $10 whenever possible.
What will my gifts be used for?
Monthly gifts benefit Lutherlyn's Annual Fund. This fund makes everything Lutherlyn does possible and helps us secure the people, equipment, and other things we need for Summer Camp and to keep it affordable for more families. Safety equipment, Health Hut supplies, insurance, craft supplies, and training are just a few of the many tangible and intangible items that affect our campers and the cost of Summer Camp programs.
Most importantly, each summer thanks to donor support Lutherlyn awards Camperships to children who would otherwise be unable to attend Summer Camp programs. It is thanks to you that Lutherlyn continues to keep our un-broken promise to never turn away a child due to financial circumstance.
What if I need to change or stop my gifts?
You can change, suspend, or stop your monthly gifts at any time by contacting the Development Office (724-865-2161 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Set Up Your Monthly Recurring Donation
We encourage you to enroll in our Monthly Giving program in which ever way works best for you. You can complete the online form below, or contact the Development Office by phone (724-865-2161) or email (email@example.com). We also have the printable form below which can be completed and returned through the mail.
Lutherlyn can process monthly gifts directly from one of your bank accounts or process transactions using your debit or credit card. We prefer transactions billed directly to a checking or savings account as the processing fees are significantly lower, allowing more of your gift to support our ministry.
Additionally, many banks offer automatic "Bill Pay" or "Online Payment" services which can be managed through your online banking account. Several of our Monthly Giving participants have elected this option as they can change or adjust the dates and amounts of their gifts to suit the needs of their budget throughout the year.
Use our on-line form to send a message to a camper that is currently at Lutherlyn. Remember, campers do not have internet access and will not be able to reply. Your message will be printed and distributed with the mail at lunch each day.
Who says camp is just for kids?!
Grown-Up Camp includes all the fun and excitement of kid camp with some relaxation, fellowship, and extras for grown-ups.
Lutherlyn’s Fathers & Sons Retreat is for fathers and sons of all ages; for fathers who “borrow” sons and for sons who “borrow” fathers. Every man and boy is welcome to this retreat which provides group and personal activities to help build on relationships and make memories.
