Thank you for helping Camp David of the Ozarks
Thanks for your interest in giving financially to the ministry of Camp David of the Ozarks. This ministry would not be possible if it wasn’t for many people like you, who are committed to giving hope to children of prisoners.
Ways to Help
How can I give?
Donate by check:
Camp David of the Ozarks
P.O. Box 1607
Rolla, MO 65402
Monthly Automatic Withdrawal
While donations in any format are accepted, automatic withdrawal is the preferred method for Camp David because it reduces administrative costs and enables a greater percentage of your donation to go directly to the projects where it’s needed most.
Gifts “In honor of” or “In Memory of”
We are glad to receive one-time gifts “In honor of” or “In memory of” loved ones. For these gifts we send a tax-deductible receipt to the donor, and we send the family or individual a special card that names the donor and the loved one for whom the gift was given in memory or honor of.
If your loved one had a passion for helping children, or was a supporter of Camp David of the Ozarks, you may want to set up a Memorial Fund, as a continuation of their legacy of giving.
If you’re considering a Memorial Gift our goal is to make it easy for you during that difficult time. We will send receipts for tax-deductible donations directly to individual donors, as well as provide donation records to families so they can thank individual donors at their convenience.
Selling a Business or Stocks?
If you are at the place in life where you are selling off a business, stocks, or other assets, you can give significantly more to charities of your choice, and also keep more if you do a little planning before you sell! If you would like to learn more about planned giving contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 573-364-2786.
To see our Financials, email Ben Smith
Are there different needs?
All undesignated gifts will go into the General Fund, which helps to pay everything from office expenses to utilities. Monthly supporters are needed to help support the general operating expenses and keep the camp going.
Sponsor A Child
Angel Tree Campers are offered free scholarships, which are provided by caring sponsors like you. A sponsor can be an individual, a family, or a Sunday School class. *It is $100 per sponsorship. In August, after camp, sponsors will receive a photo prayer card and a personalized “Thank you” note from their sponsored camper. We ask sponsors to commit to praying for their camper throughout the school year.
The mentoring program is free for the mentees, and the mentors are all volunteer. Donations to this program pay for training, supervision, mailings, insurance and other program costs. You can support the program on a monthly basis, or by a one time donation.
There is always construction going on at camp, from remodeling the old camp kitchen to building new cabins. The current building projects are a new camper cabin and an addition of more staff housing onto our Administration building. Please consider a one time gift or monthly support to the Building Fund.
Each staff person that serves at CDO is required to raise missionary support to help off-set the expenses in this non-profit organization. Whether it’s missionary support for the camp director’s family, or support for a summer volunteer, please consider being a part of giving hope by supporting those who are serving God out in the trenches.
*The actual registration cost is $300 per camper, so CDO matches each camper with two sponsors, plus we receive some sponsorship funds from Angel Tree.
