Help Keep Our Doors Open

Dear Birchwood Camp Family,

We hope this note finds you and your family safe and healthy. It has been 8 weeks since we temporarily closed our doors to guest groups due to COVID-19. It is still uncertain when we can safely welcome them again to use our facilities. With the cancellation and postponement of reservations, our income has completely stopped. Even though events were cancelled, there are still bills to pay to keep camp running. You have been our partner in ministry for 60 years. Now, more than ever, we need your help. We need your help to make sure that our doors stay open. We are asking you to:

Pray for us and with us. We believe that prayers can move mountains and this pandemic is a mountain that we can conquer together.

Donate your stimulus check or part of it to Birchwood Camp. We know that there are some people who feel like they do not need their stimulus check. If you are one of these people, please consider donating all or part of your check to Birchwood Camp. Your donation would help us continue paying for overhead and our most essential staff.

Forward this letter to a friend. If at this time you cannot donate but you know of people who can help us, please feel free to forward this letter to them. We believe in the generous nature of humankind. We have a donor wanting to do a matching donation challenge. For every donated dollar we receive in the next two weeks (by May 15), the donor will match up to $5,000. Please consider giving to Birchwood Camp now to help your gift go further!

You can send a check payable to Birchwood Camp or click the DONATE button on the right side of the page to give electronically. Thank you!

Peace,

Your Birchwood Camp Family

This is our maintenance and repair season. This year we are repairing the office/house windows, bathroom, and septic system; and the Lodge floor supports and flooring.

We have a donor wanting to do a matching donation challenge… for every donated dollar we receive in the next two weeks (by May 15) the donor will match up to $5000.000 Please consider giving to Birchwood Camp, now, to help your gift go further!

Monthly Recurring Giving

We are excited to announce that we now have automatic monthly donations as a way to give to Birchwood Camp. Would you consider making one of our Valentine’s Day themed donations each month? Maybe the cost of a box of chocolates? The cost of a frappachino on a first date? The cost of a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (whether you’re sharing it or not)? A candlelit dinner for two? 

Lots of people want to make Valentine’s Day a romantic holiday. But why not make it a holiday that celebrates caring for others? One of the amazing things about Camp is the Birchwood Family that has developed. 

To do an automatic monthly donation, click this link or click the DONATE button on the right side of the page.


Whether you decide to automatically donate each month or not, you are part of the Birchwood Family and we love you. Happy Valentine’s Day! #birchwoodfam

2017 Giving Tuesday

 

Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving that takes place each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year, it is on November 28, 2017. Giving Tuesday creates a moment around the holidays dedicated to giving—similar to how Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday have become synonymous with holiday shopping. On this day, we invite you to give to Birchwood Camp by donating or volunteering in a way that is personally meaningful. 100% of gifts made through Advance #931068  goes to support Birchwood Camp.

Why Participate?

YOU will make the camp experience possible for kids! Your financial gift gives them opportunities to create friendships, explore their faith, practice courage by trying new things, and learn how to live as part of a caring community that is like no other. Your support is vital; in order to make the camp experience accessible to all families, the fees we charge for our camping programs are much lower than the actual cost of running these programs. Your gift actually makes camp happen!
