Thank you for participating in the 2018 Camps For Kids Matching Campaign!
In 2018, between April 1 and July 31, Camps For Kids generously doubled all donations made on behalf of Camp Encourage for scholarship funding. This support allowed 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 no camper is ever turned away from camp due to financial need.
DRUMROLL PLEASE... We are tremendously delighted to announce the results of this year's Matching Campaign! Because of the love you have for our campers and our mission, our goal of raising $18,500 in scholarship funding was met! That funding will be matched by Camps for Kids and will be used to support the scholarship needs of our campers! Can you hear us cheering? Can you imagine the beautiful smiles on our campers' faces? We are ecstatic and cannot thank each of you enough!
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.
During the campaign (April 1 through July 31, 2018), contributions of $1500 or less were matched 1:1 from a funding pool developed by participating philanthropies. Gifts over $1500 were 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.
