Supporting the Ministry
Join VLM for "Three Days of Giving"!
Retreat expenses, facility up-keep, preparation for our 2018 summer program, and of course, staff costs happen all year long, and we need your help to keep this ministry strong!
We invite you to prayerfully consider a gift to support Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry now and one day in each of the next few months. Consider it "sustaining member giving" to help meet our financial needs. Your sustaining help all year long is vital in continuing to make camp happen in God's great northwoods!
Day 1 - Today, right now, matching funds are available!
Give a gift between now and October 19 and have it matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000. Give online now! Giving update, October 6 - We met our match! We have received $15,5000 to date for our First Day of Giving! Thank you!
Day 2 - Thursday, October 19
Another $10,000 match is available for any gift given ONLINE on October 19! Thank you to these generous donors for making this match possible - Mark and Sally Ludlow, the Estate of Louise Hill, and two anonymous donors who wanted to lift up the "Blood Stripe" movie and the work they are doing with veterans. Remember, Give Online to have your donation matched dollar for dollar on October 19. (You can also mail your donation; please indicate "3 Days of Giving" in the memo line.)
Day 3 - Thursday, November 16 - the great Minnesota Give Together!
We have a $20,000 match for Give to the Max thanks to an anonymous donor who loves to see people support the mission at Camp Hiawatha and Camp Vermilion!
This is a day for Minnesota non-profits to come together to raise millions of dollars in just 24 hours. For VLM it's a day for supporters of Camp Hiawatha and Camp Vermilion to come together to share what they love about camp, tell others about this great ministry, and give to help support these great camps. This all happens in one day through the work and support of GiveMN. We have two options for giving online - through our online page or at our GiveMN page.
Gifts of $100 or more automatically make you a VLM Builder. Donations can also be made by calling the camp office (218-666-5465) and giving your credit card over the phone, or by mailing your gift to the VLM office, 2555 Vermilion Camp Road, Cook, MN 5572
