We welcome your participation in a number of ways to support our programs, facilities and staff. 

When you give to Lutherdale, your gift supports a Christ-centered camp experience where every child is

welcomed, accepted, known, and celebrated.  Your gift of any amount will help accomplish the following:


Campers of all ages experience God's love in a powerful way thanks to the generosity and support of donors.  Not every family has access to this experience.  Lutherdale has a policy that no child will ever be turned away for financial reasons.  PLUS, every camper week is subsidized so that camp is more financially accessibly for all families.  


Your gift supports high quality programs, safe facilities and staff that provide a great setting for people to experience, grow in, and learn about God’s love.  



Camp changes lives! Your gift allows people of all ages to experience God in a different context. Young adults live, learn, and play in Christian community all summer long.  Guests explore God’s beautiful creation.  Staff provide a vibrant ministry of hospitality year-round for people of all ages to experience God's love.


Annual Giving

Your gift to the Let the Children Come Fund makes all the difference for campers at Lutherdale. These gifts enable us to offer outstanding programs, maintain day to day operations, and continually update our facilities. Most importantly, they provide camperships to youth. Unfortunately, camp is not financially accessible to all families. As our policy has been for decades, no child is turned away from camp due to the inability to pay. Your generous gift will help make camp possible for hundreds of kids each summer. Annual giving is essential to the daily evolving life of the ministry.

Memorial Gifts in Honor of Loved Ones

A gift to Lutherdale is a wonderful way to remember and honor a loved one. What better than a gift that enables people of all ages to grow closer to God! Such a gift lives on in the lives of those it blesses.

Planned Giving

The Heritage Oaks Society recognizes friends who have developed a planned or deferred gift to the Lutherdale Endowment Fund. Through careful gift and estate planning, you can strengthen the ongoing work of Lutherdale, providing resources and support to assure longterm financial stability and the ability to respond to emerging opportunities for generations to come.

Donations In Kind

Donation In Kind are charitable gifts of goods and services instead of a monetary gift. Examples of in-kind gifts include computers, software, office equipment, cars, trucks, lawn equipment, and other items for use by Lutherdale. These gifts help conserve Lutherdale’s resources and make a positive impact on the annual budget.

Thrivent Choice

Eligible Thrivent members can designate Lutherdale to receive funding grants, as part of their member benefit options. Thrivent Choice Dollars have a big impact on our ministry year after year. Log on to your Thrivent account to take advantage of designating your Choice Dollars to Lutherdale.
