The Spirit of Giving

Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Luke 6:38

We as the alumni, parents, grandparents, staff, and friends of Falling Creek have an exciting chance to live out that giving spirit by donating funds to any of three tax-deductible scholarships that directly benefit Falling Creek campers and staff members. Gifts may be made online or by mailing a check. Please contact the camp office for more information regarding stocks or securities gifts and any other questions. The details on each are as follows.

The opportunity that Falling Creek presents for boys as they transition into adults and leaders is one that is incredibly valuable. You learn from your failures and your successes and camp allows for smart chances to be taken and thus growth happens. I think having the opportunity to share this opportunity with as many as possible is incredibly important.

It Only Takes A Spark Fund

This exciting grant program awards Falling Creek staff members who demonstrate a “Servant’s Heart,” the resources, and support to positively impact others beyond the summer months. Former FCC staffers have started ministries to help fathers and sons develop strong relationships based on Christian principles; provided much-needed school supplies to hundreds of impoverished children in rural South Carolina; supported the American Adventure Service Corps; and helped underprivileged families in Honduras to receive basic health care, construct homes, and strengthen their Christian faith.

The selection committee awards funding from $250 - $2,500 per project for various work around the world. The fund is set up through a partnership with The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.

As a former camper, I know how important and rewarding a summer camp experience can be for a young boy. The excellence of the program and staff allows Falling Creek to run one of the finest camps in the country. To the extent this opportunity can be extended to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity, all of us will benefit in the long run.
