CAMPERSHIP ENDOWMENT FUND
Amount: $1.5 Million
NLOM has a long-term policy of making camp available to any interested child regardless of their family’s ability to pay. In order to ensure that camp continues to be affordable for years into the future, NLOM seeks to establish a $1.5 million endowment fund. Earnings from the endowment fund will provide partial or full Camperships to individuals who need financial assistance in order to attend camp. This will enable NLOM to continue to partner with other non-profit organizations like Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Lutheran Family Services, Habitat for Humanity, and others to provide a camp experience for the children they serve.
Endowment funds support Carol Joy Holling Camp’s vibrant future. Gifts that are designated for endowment are invested in perpetuity and the earnings are used to sustain vital programs, such as Camperships for children and seminary scholarships for summer staff members who respond to God’s call to serve the church.
SEMINARY SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT FUND
One of NLOM’s priorities is to raise and empower faithful leaders for the church. While working on the Summer Ministry Team, many young people feel God's call to enter full-time ministry. In fact, at least 46 SMT members have gone on to become pastors over our 40 year history. In order to help people pursue their calling, NLOM desires to establish a $500,000 endowment fund. Earnings from the endowment fund will provide seminary scholarships to gifted young people. In this way, our work in shaping faithful leaders extends well beyond the boundaries of camp.

“Carol Joy Holling Camp has been, and will always be, a foundational aspect of my call to ministry in God’s church. My summers on staff as a counselor showed me the greatness and glory of God’s creation. Above all, my time at Carol Joy Holling Camp has instilled a deep appreciation for hospitality—for making others feel welcome, appreciated, and loved.” -Evan
“Serving at Carol Joy Holling Camp strengthened my faith. I loved spending my summers in creation, and I truly enjoyed sharing my faith with all the campers and guests. Camp’s welcoming atmosphere and care for all who enter have showed me what God’s church is all about.” – Hillary
