Capital & Endowment Campaigns

This campaign seeks to establish an unassailable trust of $500,000 that will be used to generate an income in perpetuity for Camp Abby.

The camp will seek support from people who are in a financial position to provide it and who believe in what the camp does.

The board also intends to create an endowment fund which will be funded in whole or in part by bequests people designate for the camp in their wills.

As donations and endowments are received, they will be added to, and protected by, the trust.

the success of these campaigns will ensure that Camp Abby can continue to operate debt-free. meet any financial challenges with confidence, and continue to help future generations of children and youth for years to come.
