HERE'S 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

There are three ways to become a CSM Camp Champion:
- ONLINE: Join via credit card online today via the “Camp Champions Monthly Giving” section on our Donate page by clicking HERE.

- PHONE: Join via credit card by calling us at 248-822-8199.
Absolutely! Perhaps even safer than regular mail, because your name, address, and giving information are kept strictly confidential and secure. You are in control of your giving decisions at all times.
It’s easy! You can increase, decrease, or suspend your gifts at any time. You can also change your giving method (checking account or credit card) by contacting us at 248-822-8199 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your monthly credit card or bank statement will show the precise amount and date of your donation to Camp Sancta Maria. You’ll also receive a thank you letter from us each month. Those who donate by credit card will also receive an email confirmation each time your gift is processed.
Please know that we are grateful for your support regardless of the method used! But since you asked, using your checking account through your bank is preferred. Donations made in this manner allow the kids at Camp to benefit from your full gift rather than losing a percentage to credit card processing fees.
Your initial gift will be processed on the day you submit your request via the Camp Champions Monthly Giving section of the Donate page on our website (or mail in your gift form downloaded from our website). Subsequent gifts will process on the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, it will be processed on the following regular business day. This will continue indefinitely unless you inform us that you wish for these valuable donations to stop.
We’d be happy to answer your questions! You can contact us via:

Camp Sancta Maria (EIN 38-6086752) is a tax exempt nonprofit charity held in a trust governed by an independent Board of Trustees. While we serve families from all seven dioceses of Michigan (and beyond), no diocese is responsible for CSM financially. This means 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. Please prayerfully consider helping Camp Sancta Maria with your time, your talent, and your treasure. Join the CSM family and be part of forming young Christian lives! Thank you, and God bless you.
