Where do the funds go?
Like most nonprofits, we rely on donations to help us cover expenses that are not covered by program/rental fees. Donations help us run quality programs without raising fees that might hinder guests from participating. There are several ways that donations contribute to our mission.
Program and group rental fees do not completely cover expenses. The annual fund helps to cover the gap between operating revenue and operational expenses. Without this fund, program fees and rates would need to be raised to meet expenses. This could prevent some people from attending our programs. By contributing to our annual fund, you are helping us accomplish our mission, and keep our camp accessible to all. When you give a gift that you would like us to use where needed most, this is where it goes.
Scholarships & Sponsorships to Summer Camp
Every year we partner with churches and individuals to award scholarships to kids who might have difficulty affording a week of summer camp. The money for this comes from individual donors and our annual golf outing event.These funds are distributed to individual campers based on need.
A $300 donation covers the average cost of a week of summer camp. If you would like to sponsor a camper, simply donate online by clicking the button above, or send a check to Kenbrook. Be sure to write "camp sponsorship" in the comment field of Paypal, or on the memo line of your check. You can designate a specific camper if you like, but most people do not.
This annual event, held at Pine Meadows Golf Complex in early October, helps to fund camp scholarships and offset the cost of summer camp for those experiencing financial hardship. You can help us by putting together a foursome, coming out to golf yourself or inviting local businesses to sponsor the event.
As program needs change and grow, it becomes necessary to invest in the expansion and improvement of property and facilities. Funds received from program fees and group rentals do not cover these improvements. Therefore, additional funds must be raised from donations to cover these costs. Recently over $600,000 was raised to add 5 new cabins, a bathhouse, and a pavilion. These facilities are in full use now!
Occasionally we have capital improvement projects that are not in our annual budget. These projects enhance the camp for our guests and campers, but cannot get completed without the help of contributors. An example of this is the addition of an elevator to Fairland Lodge to make it more accessible to guests and campers with disabilities.
A planned gift is a donation given to Kenbrook upon the donor's passing. For example, you may wish to include Kenbrook in your will so that a portion of your estate passes to Kenbrook. Thousands of dollars have been given to Kenbrook over the years through the planned giving of generous, forward-thinking individuals. Would you consider including Kenbrook in your will?
There are many different ways to set up a planned gift to Kenbrook, including gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance policies, appreciated stocks, bonds, or real estate, and more. If this interests you, you can talk to your own financial planner, or we can recommend a local professional who can help you make these plans.
