It is the supporters of Fortune Lake who help ensure that we can continue to serve campers each year. Without your support, we couldn’t continue to provide the life changing opportunities that occur at Fortune Lake each year.
From Amanda Rasner, former Summer Staffer, TT 200 member, and current Board V.P.: Fortune Lake has always been important in the lives of my husband D.J. and I, and now, as our children grow into their Christian identities, it is becoming all the more vital. … by joining the Tenacious 200, we know we are contributing regularly to help meet the expenses of the “Place of Grace” that is forever in our hearts. I challenge all supporters of Fortune Lake to consider joining the Tenacious 200 … I especially hope the staff alumni from the 1990’s will step up their game in support of Fortune Lake!
From Dirk Manson, TT 200 and current Board member: I am a “johnny come lately” to the Fortune Lake Camp experience … It has been a wonderful experience to witness the dedication of other board members, staff and volunteers committed to sharing the Good News of Christ in this VERY special place…. Please consider joining the Tenacious 200 or increasing your support. Fortune Lake is a unique, one-of-a-kind oasis of grace and joy. Thank you for your heart and hands!!
Thrivent Choice Dollars
If you are a Thrivent member that is eligible to designate choice dollars to an organization, please consider designating them to Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp! Over the last several years, Choice Dollars have enabled us to give out scholarships and make improvements around camp that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible. For more information on how to designate your dollars, please contact your representative.
Thrivent provides each of their members with the opportunity to apply for 2 Thrivent Action teams per year. Action teams can be to support fundraisers, service projects, or an educational event. Thrivent will provide you with a banner, t-shirts, and $250 to support the project. We invite you to get a team together to support the ministry of Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp. Listed below are some easy service projects that could have a big impact here at camp. They can be done by a confirmation group, women’s group, congregational activity or just a family or two teaming up! Please contact us before you apply to be sure there isn’t another group hard at work on the same project! Most of these can be completed with the $250 provided by Thrivent Action Team.
