FoB Mission

Two Fundraisers this Fall!  Scroll down to learn about our Virtual 5k Event which kicks off on November 22, and SaveAround Coupon Books!!

Virtual 5k Fundraiser

Our virtual 5K last year was fun on so many levels PLUS we raised essential funding for Bluestone at the same time. In fact, the pandemic lightened enough this summer to allow us to have a limited family camp. What a breath of fresh air for everyone who participated!

We’re having our virtual event again this year to help raise money to support Bluestone and bring the larger community together, virtually yet united in purpose. We hope you will join us again this year as part of the entire Bluestone community. For us, this event brings a bit of Bluestone to you, no matter where in the world you are.


Sign up today to run, walk, or hike with the rest of the Bluestone community! Not interested in participating? No problem! We’re also accepting donations.  Friends of Bluestone is committed to raising $45,000 annually toward the maintenance and upkeep of Bluestone. To meet our annual goal this year, we have an ambitious goal to raise $15,000. This goal corresponds to $5,000 in each of the three categories: registrations, event sponsorships, and individual donations/fundraisers.

Interested in becoming an event sponsor? We have two levels of sponsorship for businesses to give you the right opportunity to support Bluestone and promote your business at a price that works for you.

  • Guardian ($500): Your company name and logo will be included in a large-size block in Bluestone’s annual digital photobook of the 2021 Bluestone Camp Season which all campers and their families receive + All of the Builder sponsorship listed below.
  • Builder ($250): Your company will receive the following: social media recognition and promotion (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) before, during and after the event + Customized message featured in advertising emails to all walkers and donors + Name, logo, and customized message displayed on the event website + A set of artist-designed vinyl stickers suitable for window display + Certificate of Appreciation for wall display.

Not a business? Not a problem. You can still donate using the business levels (above) or these individual levels (below), whichever suits your budget! Your gifts sustain Bluestone Camp and Retreat Center by supplying crucial funding for operations, maintenance, and upkeep.

  • Caretaker ($100)
  • Supporter ($75)
  • Fan ($50)

We will gratefully accept all sponsorships until the race begins on November 20.

SaveAround Fundraiser

It’s been another “interesting” year at Bluestone! We’re thankful we were able to run summer camps and host retreats after remaining closed in 2021. Open or closed, however the work doesn’t stop, and we continue our fundraising efforts toward maintaining camp.

You can help! We’ve joined efforts with SaveAround Coupon Books for a win-win fundraiser. You pay $25 for a coupon book (good now until the end of 2022) and half goes to Bluestone. After you use 3-5 coupons, you’ve paid yourself back the $25 investment and from there on it’s pure savings. These books are great for anyone!

Books are available across West Virginia and in 110 cities across 38 states. Order yours online:


Simply fill out the prompts (add Sarah Specht and when asked for seller info) and the book will be mailed to you.
