Starting in January 2021, we are launching a tithing program for community members who are willing and able to support camp on a regular, monthly basis. Camp ALOMA is a ministry, much like the churches represented on the Camp ALOMA Board. Additionally, as a non-profit organization, Camp ALOMA is allowed to receive donations through tax write-offs.Tithing offers many significant benefits for Camp ALOMA as a funding source. If we had a regular and consistent donation flow we wouldn’t have to do emergency fundraisers to keep camp afloat. If just 50 people tithed $25 per month for the year 2021, we would be able to raise the same $15,000 we worked so hard to raise in November.Being stable will allow us to offer more camperships, discounts , and overall keeping the fees low so we can focus on outreach to those who normally wouldn’t be able to afford camp. If we don’t have to worry about regular bills and expenses, we can expand our ministry and focus on raising funds for specific projects.
Here are a few examples of projects we could work on with regular camp expenses covered by tithes:
–Build new nurse’s station -New archery supplies
-New canoes, kayaks -Faith Lodge renovation
-Horseback riding program -Treehouse village
-New marketing materials, increased social media presence
-Laser tag and/or paintball program
-Campout wilderness cabins on hiking trails
Here’s how the CARES Act changes deducting charitable contributions made in 2020:
Previously, charitable contributions could only be deducted if taxpayers itemized their deductions.
However, taxpayers who don’t itemize deductions may take a charitable deduction of up to $300 for cash contributions made in 2020 to qualifying organizations. For the purposes of this deduction, qualifying organizations are those that are religious, charitable, educational, scientific or literary in purpose. The law changed in this area due to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
The CARES Act also temporarily suspends limits on charitable contributions and temporarily increases limits on contributions of food inventory. More information about these changes is available on IRS.gov.

ALOMA maintains a Campership Fund to provide financial aid to some of the many campers who want to attend camp but can’t afford it. The actual costs of a week at camp is more then we can recover by fees. ALOMA depends on gifts and donations to keep costs low. Still, there are those who need to come to camp the most and still can not afford it. We have a campership application process where each request for financial help is determined. Contact the Camp Office if you would like to make a donation.
