100th Anniversary Endowment Campaign
Camp Kitchikewana has a strong legacy of receiving charitable support through the generous efforts and gifts of our alumni and supporters’ database. As part of the 100th Celebration we have recently launched the Camp Kitchikewana 100th Endowment Fund to provide permanent, annual funds to support and enhance the camper experience at YMCA Camp Kitchikewana. Interest generated by the fund will be disbursed on an annual basis, and will be used to improve and replace program equipment and camp facilities to enhance the camper experience. Funds from this Endowment may not be used for capital or operational expenses.
Any gifts received through the registration process are being generously matched dollar for dollar by our lead donor, Mr. Paul Lawrence. Click here if you would like to make an endowment gift now.
To learn more about this effort please read our endowment brochure. Thank you in advance for your consideration. To help sponsor the event or to discuss further please contact Susan Kulkarni at 705-726-9622 x 450 or via email at Susan.Kulkarni@sm.ymca.ca.
