Fundraising Commitment
We encourage every staff member to raise at least $400.00 to help cover the cost of their presence at camp. This will allow us to use our funds to help bring more children to camp this summer. This can be done through a letter writing campaign, email campaign, donating additional time or resources or by participating in or conducting a fundraiser.  We will give you necessary resources to help you reach your goal.  Though not mandatory, setting this fundraising goal goes a long way towards helping the children of Camp Kindle.
