As you may guess: running a week of RFK camp is expensive! To cover the expenses and fund your way on this mission trip, we are asking each volunteer to raise support. There is no expectation that this money comes out of your pocket! Instead, please (please!) reach out to friends and family (and coworkers and Bible study partners and dentists and and) to partner with you for God's calling for your summer. This partnership request can be to fund your way, but also to support you in prayer! As a 501(c)-3 we do not have funding streams other than the support of our community, we are asking volunteers to commit to at least one of the following options:
Raise $500 to support the financial needs of the ministry by asking family, friends and community members to donate money to our organization. Please consider the timing of this ask, as many donors may want to participate in year-end giving.
Commit to volunteering for at least three of the annual fundraisers: Send a Kid to Camp Day, Golf tournament, Garage Sale, Eagle Raceway, Give to Lincoln Day/Giving Tuesday
Please do NOT let this be a barrier for coming to camp, contact Nick if you any concerns or questions about meeting this commitment and he is happy to problem solve with you.
Toolbox for raising support. These resources are intended to be used as OPTIONAL tools for you to raise support for Royal Family KIDS Lancaster. They are not an expectation or a limitation.
