The Stand in the Gap Relief Fund was launched in May 2020 to help camp recover from retreats and summer sessions cancelled for the safety of guests and campers. Our COVID-19 response so far (Letter To 2020 Registered Camper Families | Letter To Extended Camp Family) guarantees a net loss of $700,000 in fixed costs. Should we have to cancel more camp weeks, those costs will grow. Thanks to a $350,000 matching gift from generous friends of Glisson, all Stand in the Gap Relief Fund giving will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to our $700,000 goal. With your donation or pledge today, you can help ensure camp will continue bringing faith to life for generations to come!


Your gift to this fund – above and beyond any current giving – will help guarantee the future of our camping ministries, ensuring that the damage of COVID-19 is limited as much as possible. Every gift of any amount is vital to reaching our $700,000 goal.


Make an online pledge today! All gifts made and pledges completed by 12/31/20 will qualify for a generous friend of Glisson’s matching gift up to $350,000.
