Support the Annual Fund
The Living Water Ministries Annual Fund exists because of gracious gifts of support from our donors. Registration income alone does not offset the expense of the programs we offer. The Annual Fund picks up the difference.

Gifts to the Living Water Ministries Annual Fund make it possible for us to provide financial assistance to families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate in this ministry. Gifts of $25, $50, $100, $500, or any other amount make all the difference in supporting this unique ministry. Become a donor today by sending a gift, or by placing a gift on-line using the link below.
