The Annual Fund is the life-blood of most non-profit organizations. Annual Fund gifts are given in general support of the operations and mission of Living Water Ministries, and help offset things like seasonal staff training expenses, program development, accreditation fees, the food our campers eat, utilities, facility upkeep, insurance costs, and marketing expenses.  In the wake of the cancellation of our 2020 programs, we centered out efforts on restoring momentum for Living Water Ministries.  As we enter our second year of program cancellation in 2021, we now shift our focus to Restoring Hope as we do the work planning, preparing, and implementing our best program year ever in 2022.  A gift to our Restoring Hope campaign is an investment in the future of Living Water Ministries and the work God continues to do through the experiences of faith, service, leadership, and community we curate.  While the times in which we are living are certainly challenging, we believe God is at work restoring hope, and that “hope does not disappoint.” We invite you to embrace that share that hope alongside us through a gift to Living Water Ministries.
