In June, our Director leads this campaign to fill our scholarship funds, so we can get as many kids to camp as possible, regardless of financial background. Every child deserves the camp experience. Help us help them get there!

Sustaining Heroes

Becoming a sustaining donor for Camp WA WA Segowea is more than just a generous act - it's an investment in the future of our youth and the enhancement of our community. By choosing to support us on a recurring basis, you are providing a stable foundation that allows us to plan ahead, innovate our programs, and extend our reach to more children, including those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the transformative power of summer camp. You can choose to be a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual donor. 

 
Corporate Sponsorships/Matched Gifts

Did you know that many companies offer matching gift programs and corporate sponsorships? If you leverage your companies matched gift program, you can often double or even triple your contribution at no cost to you! Besides amplifying your own impact, you will also engage your employer in our mission. Corporate sponsorships can open the door to a partnership that benefits both Camp WA WA and the sponsoring company! 

We encourage all our donors to explore these opportunities with their employers or businesses they are connected with. Your effort to maximize your donation through corporate sponsorships and matched gifts can significantly increase our capacity to serve our community, making a profound difference in the lives we touch.

 
Legacy Legends

Planned gifts have an enormous and lasting impact on Smith Park of New York and Camp WA WA Segowea by creating a legacy that will impact all campers for generations. A common misconception is that planned giving is only for the wealthy. However, strategic planned giving from individuals from all levels of wealth is critical for the long-term success of the Camp.

 

Typical lifetime planned giving strategies (although there are many types) include outright gifts, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable lead trusts.  Examples of planned gifts after one’s death include bequests in a donor’s last will and testament or naming Smith Park as the beneficiary of a trust, life insurance policy, or retirement account. 

 

We encourage all of those interested in planned giving to contact their attorney, accountant, or financial advisor. Often it takes a team to put together an effective planned gift. If you are interested in becoming a Legacy Legend, please contact us at legacygiving@campwawa.org.
