Double your donation during the Camps For Kids Matching Campaign!

Between April 1 and July 31, Camps For Kids will DOUBLE all donations made on behalf of Camp Encourage for scholarship funding. For example: every $25 gift turns into $50, $500 into $1000, and $1500 into $3000, all with the goal: to allow more youth with autism in our region the opportunity to attend an overnight camp tailored to meet their needs!

With approximately 70% of our campers annually requesting some scholarship funding in order to attend Camp Encourage, the Camps For Kids campaign provides a great opportunity to support our efforts to ensure nobody is ever turned away from camp due to financial need.

DURING THE CAMPAIGN, you can contribute online or via a good ol' check. If paying by check, one would simply make it payable to Camps For Kids, write Camp Encourage on the memo line, and mail it to:

Camps For Kids
5960 Dearborn, Suite 225
Mission, KS 66202

Please note: For the 2017 campaign, Camps For Kids will send receipts for your tax-deductible donation, but Camp Encourage will still get notification of all of your generous gifts. If you do not receive your receipt after the conclusion of the campaign, please contact us by email or by phone 816.830.7171.

We are tremendously appreciative to be a part of the Camps For Kids network since our founding year, thankful that Camps For Kids works diligently throughout the year to provide this matching program, and grateful to those individuals making this tax-deductible donation.

Camps For Kids is a local nonprofit organization committed to assuring that no Kansas City youngster is denied the benefits of summer camp due to disability or low income.

Contributions of $1500 or less are matched 1:1 from a funding pool developed by participating philanthropies. Gifts over $1500 are forwarded to the designated program (Camp Encourage) with the first $1500 being eligible for match. The matching of contributions ceases when the matching pool is exhausted.

There are countless ways to get involved, including:
  • Make a matchable donation!
  • Help spread the word about your love for Camp Encourage, what camp means to your family, how you got involved, etc.
  • Encourage your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to make a tax-deductible donation.
  • Create a fundraising page using a crowdfunding website.
  • Host your own fundraiser in your home, office, church, or school.
  • Contact our Development Coordinator by email or at 816. 830.7171 for ideas and support.
