The Alkulana Offering is a year round request for funding the budget of the summer program, with an emphasis in May of each year. Our offering goal for 2019 is $161,000.
Camp Alkulana is in constant demand today! In an economy where non-profit organizations and faith-based ministries are struggling to prove their relevancy, we have received consistent requests from community groups and families who want their children to have an experience at Alkulana. We need your help to make this possible!
Since 1915, Camp Alkulana has continuously been a place of renewal for the children and youth of Central Virginia, providing a natural environment in which God’s love can come alive for them! Through Bible study, adventure activities, and meaningful relationships, we are changing lives. We cannot continue this amazing work without your support. Please give as individuals and through your churches.
The full amount collected for the Camp Alkulana Offering will go towards Camp Alkulana program and personnel costs.
Gifts to the Alkulana Endowment Fund are an investment in the next one hundred years of Alkulana. As our endowment grows, the interest earned each year can provide increasingly significant contributions to our operations. Consider giving towards the future of Alkulana.
Sponsor a Camper
When considering how much to give, consider the camp’s cost per camper. While most campers only pay $25 to attend a session of camp, the camp’s programming budget amounts to a cost of approximately $500 for each camper. A gift of $500 to Alkulana could mean a world of difference to a child who could attend camp.
One-time or recurring gifts can easily be made online. Setting up a recurring online gift is a simple way to build Alkulana into your budget, and we love it because it helps us know that we can count on your gift each month. Consider how much you can afford to give each month (some give $5 a month, others give $500) and set it up today through the e-giving website.
The Westhampton Scholarship
The Westhampton Scholarship fund was established in 2017 to support Camp Alkulana campers attending college or vocational training. Westhampton Baptist Church (Richmond, VA) generously endowed this fund in order to advance Camp Alkulana campers for generations to come. Additional contributions are accepted toward this fund.
