Samaritan Fundraising Gears Up to Tackle Youth Groups’ Need to Raise Money for Summer Camp

Share Article

Across the nation, youth groups are experiencing an increasing need to raise funds for their summer trips, and Samaritan Fundraising is looking to tap into that market with their innovative fundraising products.

With summer camp season right around the corner, Samaritan Fundraising, an innovative fundraising products company specializing in the fundraising needs of Christian organizations, is gearing up to respond to the ever growing fundraising needs of youth groups.

Since its inception, Samaritan Fundraising has primarily focused most of its efforts on school and church fundraisers, but with church budgets getting tighter, the Christian fundraising company has seen a rise in fundraising interest from youth groups.

"In this tough economy, many churches aren't able to subsidize summer church camp,” said Tom Freiling, vice president and founder of Samaritan Fundraising. “We're hearing from youth pastors across the country who are looking for new ways to raise money. The Samaritan Card is the perfect fundraiser because it's so fast and easy.”

The Samaritan Card, the premier fundraising product of Samaritan Fundraising, is based upon the principle of giving back to the donor. Once a card is purchased, the owner receives access to countless online discounts, coupons, and savings that can be used either in-store or online at over 100,000 national and local merchants.

“I’ve recommended the Samaritan Card to other youth groups in the area,” said John Laye, a Missouri youth group sponsor who was able to raise over $1,000 for summer camp. “I don’t know of any other idea or fundraiser to raise money that was so fast and easy.”

Laye’s youth group, like many other youth groups who have experienced fundraising success with Samaritan Fundraising, is an example of how the youth group fundraising market can prove to be lucrative for the Christian fundraising company.

Said Freiling, "With more than 300,000 churches in America, we plan to become a big part of their youth ministry fundraising efforts."
