Fundraising for Camp
Here are some ideas of ways to help cover your camp cost:
Write a sponsorship letter to friends and relatives. Many of your family and friends will be excited to assist you by praying for you and helping you out financially. Check out this sample letter that brought $3,000 to the person who sent it. Don't forget to enclose a self-addressed stamped envelopes with each letter! If you receive checks made out to Survivors, send them to our Riverside office with a note indicating the money is to be applied to your camp fee and indicate in the memo your name and “Camp Donation”. If you do not explain the checks when they are sent to our office, we will not be able to apply the donations correctly. Family and friends can also make donations online using our camp payment link. Make sure that they note that the donation is for you.
Ask your church to sponsor you. Survivors is a missionary outreach, and our purpose of informing and educating the public regarding the significant evil of abortion and the sanctity of human life is rooted in our belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is encouraging to see young people become involved in missionary outreaches, and your church may be willing to sponsor you and other youth

Supermarket gift certificates - many local grocery stores (Safeway, King Soopers, Stater Bros., Albertson's, etc.) have programs which allow you to sell gift certificates to family, friends, or church and receive a percentage. You can earn up to 5% of certificates sold, and your family, friends and church receive gift certificates dollar-for-dollar. Contact your local supermarket and ask about the gift certificate program.
