Dear Friends and Family of  Camp Sancta Maria,
The CSM Camp Champions Monthly Giving Program has launched!

We have wonderful news! With this email, we are launching a brand new monthly giving program for Camp Sancta Maria, and all who join will become Camp Champions!

As I'm sure you know, monthly donors are those who give automatically each month through their credit card or bank account. Through monthly gifts, Camp Champions provide CSM with crucial ongoing support -- a consistent and reliable source of funding that allows us a financial foundation to plan ahead -- which is particularly important for an organization like ours

Will you prayerfully consider helping CSM continue in its mission to form young Christian lives by becoming a CSM Camp Champion today?  When you become a Camp Champion, you join a special group of people making a big impact with small gifts to help change children's lives.

Why One Donor Gives Monthly

"I contribute to Camp Sancta Maria because the Camp is devoted to forming, and transforming, young Christian lives.  By infusing all activities with an atmosphere of faith -- playing sports, riding horses, learning to swim, heading outside to camp -- every minute becomes an opportunity for kids to connect everyday life with the spiritual, making their relationship with God real.  In this way, CSM has changed my children's lives. I give so that other children may experience this change, too."  -- Clay

We Can't Do This Without You!

Earlier this year, we shared with you that some people refer to CSM as Michigan's best kept secret. Our goal for 2019, with your help, has been to become Michigan's WORST kept secret so that EVEN MORE children can benefit from the tremendous formation that Camp instills!

Thank you to all who have prayed for us, volunteered their time, and made financial contributions. We are deeply grateful!

Now that we're in the home stretch of 2019, we ask for your continued support and prayers, ever mindful that the work continues year-round in preparation for our upcoming season.

As we unveil our Camp Champions Monthly Giving Program with this email, we thank you for prayerfully considering supporting CSM in this special way.

Along with your financial contributions, there is another way you can help, as well. Please spread the word -- in your circle of family, friends, and coworkers -- about the wonderful ways in which our Lord is changing the lives of so many children at CSM.

Recommendations from one parent to another are so very valuable! You can forward this email to your friends by clicking on the "Forward to a friend" link below:
Another way you can help us spread the word is to distribute flyers at your school, church, or work. If you are able to assist in this way, please contact Wally at 248-238-3031 or wally@campsanctamaria.org, and he will mail some to you. We appreciate your help!
Thank you to all who support us! We are honored and blessed by your commitment to the children at Camp Sancta Maria.  May our Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones.

CSM is held in a trust governed by an independent Board of Trustees. While the Archdiocese of Detroit had generously donated the services of one its priests for decades, they are not responsible for CSM financially. This means that we are responsible to secure our own funding to advance the mission that has been passed down to us since our founding in 1933. To continue this essential work, we need your help. Are you feeling called to donate? Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
