YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
There are several ways to make your tax deductible financial contribution to Camp Dickenson and directly impact the mission and ministry of camp. Camp Dickenson offers four different donation categories so you can choose how your dollars are used: Annual Fund, Capital Campaign, Endowments, and Scholarships.
Donations to the Annual Fund help support the camp's day-to-day operation. These gifts makes it possible for us to reduce our fees for quality programs and services to thousands of campers, students and guests each year. The Annual Fund also helps us with the routine maintenance of the camp's 20+ buildings, the infrastructure to support those facilities plus the roads, trails and grounds on our 524 acre property. Small gifts can have a great impact here.
High quality, impactful camp programming has many associated costs. The full cost of a week of camp is financially out of reach for some families, but we believe every child should have the opportunity to experience summer camp. Gifts to the Campership Fund support a need-based financial aid program designed to make a week at Camp Dickenson available to every child. Every gift, no matter the size, will be applied 100% to camper registration fees.
The combination of aging facilities and growing ministry needs requires Camp Dickenson to make regular investments in capital projects. Needs such as a new roof, upgrading outdated facilities, or replacing aging equipment are funded through the Capital Campaign. Your gift to the Capital Fund also help us design and build new facilities to support growth in our ministry. Medium and large gifts have a great impact on our ability to complete capital projects.
Your gift to the Endowment Fund offers the opportunity to make a long term investment in the health and vitality of the camp's ministry. Endowment gifts are invested and generate income each year that can be used to support the camp's needs. Large gifts can have the greatest impact for years to come in this fund.
