While gifts to the Glisson Annual Fund are unrestricted, allowing Glisson the flexibility to allocate the funds to the area of greatest need, any gift can be designated for something specific. We want all donor gifts to be reflective of the giver's heart and passion, so the gift can be as meaningful for the giver as it is for Glisson.
Your gift can be designated for virtually any specific initiative you wish within the framework of Camp Glisson operations. Following are some examples of how a gift to Glisson could be designated:
- Building Program: Gifts designated for the building program are allocated to the building project in effect at the time the gift is made. At present, gifts designated for the Building Program will support our new Dining Hall. You may recall that the Glisson Board allocated up to $900,000 in Glisson operational funds toward our Serving Generations capital campaign. While Glisson will honor that commitment, current gifts to the building program will help Glisson meet that obligation.
- Specific Capital Improvements: In the past, donors have made gifts to specific capital projects which reflected their own passion for Glisson. These projects need to be endorsed by the Glisson staff and must be consistent with Glisson's mission and programs. One recent example is the Cane Creek Falls Trail, a named gift given in 2010 in honor of Lige and Ena Moore by their four adult children.
- Endowment: Gifts to the Endowment would not be utilized in the short-term, but would be invested to grow for many years. These funds would ultimately help to ensure the long-term sustainability and growth of Glisson ministries through initiatives such as property acquisition, facility modernization and capital improvements.
- Gifts in Honor or Memory: Any gift, whether it be to the Annual Fund or designated for a specific purpose and regardless of the amount, can be made in honor or in memory of a family member or loved one. Simply provide that person's name when submitting the gift - along with the address of anyone you would like to be notified of your gift.
