We need your help! Together, we can achieve the impossible.
We are requesting your help to reach our goals of raising $270,000 for capital, $200,000 in volunteer labour, and $30,000 for operations. Are you willing to provide support?
You might think this is a crazy set of goals; however, I know that working together, we can achieve these goals by December 31, 2017. Crazy – maybe. Doable – absolutely! Before I get into how you can help us achieve our goals, there are couple things I would like to share with you!
First, I would like to thank you for your dedication and support of children and youth. Your investment in the ministry here at Covenant Bay shows how dedicated you are to children and youth to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ. We want you to feel proud of what God is doing in the lives of children and youth!
Second, by the middle of December, the outside of the Accommodations Lodge should be complete. With this new building, we will be able to serve our children and youth within our churches and communities even better, not only in the summer, but also in the winter!
The Covenant Bay board has set these three goals to help serve our children and youth even better:
- $270,000 – Capital
- $200,000 – Volunteer Labour
- $ 30,000 – Operations
Let’s start with the capital goal. For every dollar given to the capital fund, a group of Covenant Bay supporters will match that to a maximum amount of $135,000 of total funds donated. How exciting is that? That means if donors give $135,000, it will be matched, for a total of $270,000! See the attached sheet for details and how you can contribute!
Volunteer labour is awesome! We are seeking both skilled and unskilled volunteer labour in a variety of areas from general clean up to finishing carpentry. See the attached sheet to learn how and where you can volunteer your time and skills!
Finally, $30,000 is needed to prepare for the next camping season. This will allow us to continue operating through the winter months.
You can donate and get regular updates on our building project and fundraising efforts by visiting covenantbay.ca/lodge. Whether you are donating your time or your finances, your efforts are greatly welcomed and appreciated. We thank you for supporting our children and youth campers in building and deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ!
