There are a number of ways to give to NLOM creatively. Check out the information below on Thrivent Choice, Thrivent Action Teams, Blessing by the Bushel Program, TAGG, and Amazon Smile!

Thrivent choice & Action teams

Thrivent Choice is a program through which members can designate their available Choice Dollars toward various organizations, including Carol Joy Holling Camp & Sullivan Hills Camp. If you are a Thrivent policy holder or hold a volunteer leadership position, just follow these simple instructions and you can designate your Choice Dollars. Thank you for thinking of us.

On the Internet

  1. Go to the Thrivent website and sign in with your username and password or register for an account in the upper right hand corner of the page.

  2. Once you have registered and signed in, select the “Direct Choice Dollars” button for Thrivent Choice in the right hand side.

  3. In the middle of the next page, type in “Carol Joy Holling Camp," or "Sullivan Hills Camp.” in the “Organization Name” box (nothing in “City”) and click search.

  4. Next to our camp name, click the “Direct Now” button. You will be able to assign all or part of your choice dollars to us.

  5. Click the “submit button” and your Thrivent Choice Dollars will be sent to our ministry. You are able to designate once there is $5 or more accumulated, but recurring donations are being discontinued.

Over the Phone

  1. Call 800-847-4836.

  2. Follow the prompts that are given.

  3. You will be asked for the last four digits of your Social Security number, then you will be sent through an automated operator system.

  4. Our camp is listed as “Carol Joy Holling Camp," or "Sullivan Hills Camp.”


Thank you again for your support of our ministry!

As farmers prepare their fields for planting, Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries prepares the hearts of young people to receive the seeds of faith. We often have to break through the hard ground of disbelief, work topsoil so that roots will grow deep, weed out the thorns that choke the Good News, and cultivate fertile soil that produces a plentiful harvest.  

The seeds you plant in your field can help the seeds of faith sown in the hearts of our youth. We encourage you to consider donating bushels of corn, soybeans, wheat or other commodities directly to NLOM. While you will likely receive tax advantages for your gift, you will receive a greater blessing by making an eternal investment in the lives of Nebraska’s children and teens. 

Tax Advantage*

*For illustration only. Consult your tax advisor for information specific to your situation.

Reasons to Give

Beyond the tax advantages, there are many reasons to make a commodity gift to NLOM. 
•    Invest in the potential and promise of our young people.
•    Support the local community by raising strong, faithful leaders.
•    Develop younger, more enthusiastic members of your congregation.
•    Enable NLOM to reach children and teens through relevant programs.
•    Increase the number of young people who are able to attend camp.

How to Give

  1. Download and fill out the Gift Form and send it to NLOM via email to, fax to 402-944-2544 or mail to 27416 Ranch Rd. Ashland, NE 68003. 


  2. Check the list of participating elevators below  to make sure yours is on the list, if not contact us and we get one setup.

  3. Transfer the grain into the Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries account at your elevator.

  4. Call us at 402-944-2544 or e-mail to inform us that you have transferred your grain into our account.

  5. NLOM will sell your grain and send you an acknowledgement of your donation.
