Thank you for helping Hope of the Ozarks

Thanks for your interest in giving financially to the ministry of Hope of the Ozarks. This ministry would not be possible if it wasn’t for many people like you, who are committed to bringing hope to children of prisoners.

How can I give?

Donate by check:
Hope of the Ozarks
P.O. Box 1607
Rolla, MO 65402

Monthly Automatic Withdrawal
While donations in any format are accepted, automatic withdrawal is the preferred method for Hope of the Ozarks because it reduces administrative costs and enables a greater percentage of your donation to go directly to the projects where it’s needed most.

Gifts “In honor of” or “In Memory of”

We are glad to receive one-time gifts “In honor of” or “In memory of” loved ones. For these gifts we send a tax-deductible receipt to the donor, and we send the family or individual a special card that names the donor and the loved one for whom the gift was given in memory or honor of.

Memorial Fund

If your loved one had a passion for helping children, or was a supporter of Hope of the Ozarks, you may want to set up a Memorial Fund, as a continuation of their legacy of giving.
If you’re considering a Memorial Gift our goal is to make it easy for you during that difficult time. We will send receipts for tax-deductible donations directly to individual donors, as well as provide donation records to families so they can thank individual donors at their convenience.

Selling a Business or Stocks?

If you are at the place in life where you are selling off a business, stocks, or other assets, you can give significantly more to charities of your choice, and also keep more if you do a little planning before you sell! If you would like to learn more about planned giving contact or call 573-364-2786.

To see our Financials, email Joshua Cullom.

Are there different needs?

General Fund

All undesignated gifts will go into the General Fund, which helps to pay everything from office expenses to utilities. Monthly supporters are needed to help support the general operating expenses  and keep the camp going.

Sponsor A Child
Angel Tree Campers are offered free scholarships, which are provided by caring sponsors like you. A sponsor can be an individual, a family, or a Sunday School class.  We ask sponsors to commit to praying for their camper throughout the school year.

Night of Camp
Night of Camp is a monthly event designed to bring campers, staff, and supporters back to camp for an evening of fun, food, and teaching. Funding would go toward transportation costs, supplies, and food.  You can support the program on a monthly basis, or by a one time donation.

Building Fund
There is always construction and maintenance going on at camp, from adding additional stalls to the horse barn to fixing sinks. Future buidling projects include finishing the horse barn additions and additional staff housing. Please consider a one time gift or monthly support to the Building Fund.

Staff Support
Each staff person that serves at HOTO is encouraged to raise missionary support  to help off-set the expenses in this non-profit organization. Whether it’s missionary support for the camp director’s family, or support for a summer volunteer, please consider being a part of giving hope by supporting those who are serving God out in the trenches.
