Christ’s Outreach for the Blind is located on 900 acres in
Rockcastle County, Kentucky. Currently, the camp for blind and/or handicap youth
and young adults is under construction. We anticipate opening during 2004, but this
dream can only be recognized through your support! We need approximately $511,917.00
to complete our programs and $322,700.00 for general operating expenses during the
first year. YOUR support is needed!
Gift of Cash
This is a convenient way of making a gift to the camp. This can be done through cash or check.
You can designate how this money is to be used such as general operating expenses or for a
particular program if you wish.
This is a new program at Christ’s Outreach for the Blind that allows for individuals, groups,
churches, and businesses to commit to making a $5 per month donation to the camp. The donation
is due by the 20th of each month.
A pledge is a commitment that you make to give a certain amount over a period of time.
A bequest occurs when you give or leave something (usually personal property or assets) by will
or living trust. Assets can include cash, interests in a business, real estate, jewelry or art
objects, stocks and bonds, and insurance benefits.
Organize a group, develop a fundraiser such as a car wash, bake sale, auction. Then donate
the proceeds to Christ’s Outreach for the Blind.
This involves a contribution of an actual item instead of money. Some in-kind donations that we
have received are furniture, appliances, and small kitchenware.
Recycling of Ink Cartridges
Christ’s Outreach for the Blind is working with Funding Factory to recycle ink cartridges, toners,
and cell phones. Currently, we are working toward purchasing our ADA approved playground equipment.
You can become a supporter!
From time to time, Christ’s Outreach for the Blind will be conducting special fundraisers.
