What Your Money Can Do
Kamp For ALL Kids Fund
This year Lakeside raised enough money to send 24 Foster kids from the state of Iowa to camp. In partnership with LSI, Lakeside works toward ensuring that all foster children can become a part of the Lakeside family. Next year we plan on doubling the number of foster kids to 48, but we'll need your support! Any and all donations toward the cause would be helpful!
All Are Welcome Campaign
While it's fun to give money for specific parts of camp, there are always running expenses that keep our doors open. The annual fund helps to pay for maintenance, salaries, utilities, and general expenses of running the camp. Help us maintain camp by donating to the annual fund!
Miltner Retreat Center Fund
Every summer tens of thousands of dollars are given in camperships to children who could not otherwise afford to come to camp. It is the policy of Lutheran Lakeside that no one is turned away regardless of their ability to pay.
This is a permanent fund - the principal is never touched and only the annual proceeds may or may not be used in a given year. This fund is the foundation of financial security for Lakeside and ensures that children and families have a place to go to renew, refresh, and be open to listening for God's voice.
Memorials and Honorariums
Gifts to camp are a great way to honor the memory of a loved one who has passed away, or honor a special occasion in the life of a relative or friend such as: a birthday, promotion, anniversary, graduation, birth, special achievement, baptism, confirmation, or as an expression of gratitude or support.
