Camp Spirit Song is offered in partnership with the SpiritWorks Foundation to give the gift of a camp experience to children in Province III affected by the opioid addiction of a parent or other close loved one. 2019 is the inaugural year of Camp Spirit Song, and the first camp program of its kind on the east coast, and we ask your prayers and support for our ministry this summer.
Camp provides children grades 4-8 with an opportunity to meet God through:
● the support of a Christian community
● fellowship with peers who share a common experience
● time to rest and play away from the distractions of everyday life
It is our mission to offer to Camp Spirit Song at no cost to campers’ families. You can help make camp a reality for 40 campers this year by sponsoring a camper. $1,000 covers the cost of one camper, including room and board, program materials, and staff fees. Individuals, parishes, and dioceses may donate directly toward camper sponsorship. St. Andrew’s Parish in Glenwood, Maryland, has committed to sponsoring the cost of one camper.
If you prefer to make a gift by cash or check please make your check payable to: SpiritWorks Foundation and mail to: 5800 Mooretown Road Williamsburg, VA 23188

Is there someone in your life that you want to remember or honor with a special gift? Perhaps there is a special day coming – a birthday, marriage, anniversary or holiday. Give a gift to SpiritWorks Foundation in their honor or in their memory. You can even ask others to make a donation to SpiritWorks on behalf of your loved one in lieu of flowers. Indicate your instructions when making your gift.
Giving for the Long-Term
Many donors make a long-term commitment to SpiritWorks Foundation by pledging a gift that is payable over three years or more. Just indicate the total amount of your pledge and specify the payment terms. These long-term gifts help SpiritWorks Foundation plan for the future.
Local companies—large or small—can make a significant impact, from providing funds for critical recovery support services to sharing the talents, time, and interests of employees. Business leaders know that giving back is good for business—and good for the community!
Making a gift of appreciated securities such as stocks or other appreciated assets can be a great tax-efficient method for making a gift to SpiritWorks Foundation. In most instances, you can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift and avoid any capital gains tax.
What if you could support the work of SpiritWorks Foundation in the future without committing any money today? A gift through your estate can one day help us carry out our work to grow the recovery advocacy movement. It’s easy – you can name SpiritWorks Foundation as a beneficiary of specific assets, of a portion of your estate, or of your residual estate. The following assets provide an easy and tax-efficient way to make a bequest and provide the flexibility to be modified if your circumstances change:
Retirement plan such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b)
Life insurance policy
Financial accounts such as bank or brokerage account or a certificate of deposit (CD)
If you’re age 70½ or older, you can make contributions directly from your IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to qualified charitable organizations without owing any income tax on the distributions.
A charitable IRA rollover can be a great way to comply with the RMD requirement without triggering the tax liability that would occur if the RMD were paid to you.
