Wish List

Gifts-in-kind can help cover some operational needs of Cedar's ministry. This interdepartmental "wish list" is updated periodically. 

Donations are usually acknowledged with a letter from InterVarsity (the dollar value is between you and the IRS); let us know if that's not desired.

Please call 906.484.2294 before shipping or bringing items to assure the need is still current, or if you have any question about the fitness of the item you can offer.


Recreation at Cedar is important to us, and we think that our guests deserve the best we can provide. Therefore, general donations, while welcome, should be discussed with the Recreation Coordinator

We currently have need to repair a significant number of recreation boats and support equipment. Your generous donation to our capital accounts is welcomed.

Perhaps your most important contribution is your time. Please volunteer to help us maintain the high levels of service you deserve!
