Donate to Red Willow Ministries

We really couldn’t be the camp we’re striving to be without your support.

There are many ways to contribute financially to the camp, including memorials and legacy gifts, becoming a Friend of Red Willow, or contributing to one of our special appeals.  We welcome you to contact us for any assistance with your gift giving ideas.

Or mail a check to our office with this printable mail-in Donation Form.

  • Recurring Donations: Schedule donations to occur automatically monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. A reminder email will be sent before the transaction runs.
