Support Shekinah Ranch
Dear Friends and Family,
The Shekinah Ranch is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit and non-denominational Christian organization seeking to impact children through recreation, teamwork, spiritual instruction, horses and outdoor adventures.
We hope you will embrace this wonderful opportunity and send a gift today that will make a powerful impact for children. Your gift will help to provide new programs, equipment and build the future of Shekinah Ranch. You can make a difference for hundreds of children and ensure that they will have an adventurous summer experience on a western style ranch made just for them.
Please consider sending a tax-deductible contribution that will fill your heart with joy knowing that you’ve enabled us to reach more kids and offer better programs as we continue to impact lives for Christ through horses and outdoor adventures. Your gift will make their dreams come true.
God Bless You for your continued prayers and loving support!

HOW ElSE YOU CAN HELP!
PRAYER: Whether you feel God is leading you to support us financially or not. Please keep our program, campers and staff in your prayers. God has blessed us with so much and we are forever grateful. We ask that you join with us as we pray for the Lord’s continued favor and blessings. Let us pray for you too!
SPREAD THE WORD: Telling others about what we're doing and helping us find new campers is just like a donation. Ask to receive promotional info to pass to friends, family and coworkers. Find businesses that would allow us to advertise and post flyers. Organize a group meeting or Shekinah party for us to come and tell others about camp.
SHEKINAH SCHOLARSHIP FUND: Sponsor a child – make dreams come true! Your financial gift will enable kids to have a summer that they’ll remember for a lifetime. For a one time gift of $390 or annual contribution of $30/month for 12 months underwrites one full scholarship of a child.
SHEKINAH ANNUAL FUND: Donors who give on a monthly basis can help make up the high cost of camp operations not covered by camper fees. We also will use this fund to improve our program and facility as needed.

FACT: If you divide our total operating costs by the number of campers we have a season our per Rancher cost is approx $550. This means it costs $550 per camper for us to simply break even. We currently charge $145/Day Camp, $390/Horse Camp, $390/Adventure-Trekker. (Not considering various discounts)
This shows us a few things:
1. God blesses the faithful.
2. Apart from your gifts we would not exist.
3. Your gifts keep camp prices low.
4. You allow us to expand and improve.
