Just before the beginning of Ma-He-Tu's 77th summer, the Foundation received a donation and note from one of its most iconic directors, Jean Gaise Swedberg, and her husband John. Jean was director from 1964 to 1970, and this summer marks her 50th anniversary as Ma-He-Tu's director. Calling her directorship her "dream job," Jean wrote, "I thank you...[for creating] an endowment fund for the Lutheran Girls' Camp Association - the Camp Ma-He-Tu Foundation."
Midway through our first fundraising year the Foundation has nearly $55,000 invested and growing, and another $55,000 in pledges. We deeply appreciate the generosity of those who have donated, pledged and started us on our way to our 5-year, $500,000 goal. Thank you!
And now we have other ways to give as well. Thrivent Financial members can direct Thrivent Choice Dollars to the Foundation. And those who shop at Amazon may do so through smile.amazon.com. By logging on to that website when shopping at Amazon, you will have the chance to designate the Camp Ma-He-Tu Foundation to receive a percentage of your purchase.
Every donation from every source helps. And remember: each gift to Ma-He-Tu's endowment fund is a gift that keeps on giving!
