How can you help?

Lutherwood needs YOU!  It takes all of us to create sustainable programming here at Lutherwood and a little bit can go a long way. Your generous gift will enable Lutherwood to continue providing life-changing summer and retreat season experiences for campers of all ages.

Thank you in advance for your gift.

We also want to thank you for your continued support of Lutherwood and the ministry that happens here. You have donated money, sent campers, volunteered, and allowed us to be a part of your lives. We would not be who we are without you! You make a huge difference!

Your gift is tax deductible, as we are a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.

Auction Items

Every auction needs items that can be bid on to be successful. Quilts, baskets filled with your favorite goodies, and even vacation destinations are all fair game. Be as creative or straightforward with your idea as you like. Just be sure to get in touch with Laura to arrange a drop off or pick up time and date at


You can donate individually, as a congregation, or as an organization. Your monetary donations help keep our camp up and running so that we may directly impact kids’ lives in a variety of ways from peer acceptance to learning leadership skills to singing to opening their hearts and minds to Jesus’ grace and love to a loving environment.

Camperships are awarded to every camper who needs financial assistance to attend a week of camp. We wouldn’t be able to provide this without you! With your partnership in ministry, we can send even more kids to camp in order to give them the transformative experience that is camp.

Send a check, made out to Lutherwood, in the mail to us at 1185 Roy Road, Bellingham, WA  98229
Donate online (You don’t have to be a member of PayPal to help us share God’s love!)
