As a Non-Profit Organization, we rely on the generous gifts from donors like you to ensure Camp Dark Waters’ continued success. Donations are made to one of three funds
Annual Fund: This is an unrestricted fund dedicated to supporting camp programming, providing supplies, routine maintenance, etc. Donations to this fun supplement’s the Camp’s income, which helps to defray costs and to keep our tuition low.
Legacy Fund: This Fund provides Camp with an element of financial stability in the face of an increasing frequency of environmental challenges. Over time, this endowment will generate income that can be used to supplement The Annual Fund. The Legacy Fund also holds money from Legacy Society members received in one or more of the following ways: bequests, life insurance, charitable annuities, Trust appropriations, and gifts of appreciated stock. The Judith Ferbel Memorial Fund is also housed within the Legacy Fund.
CDW Campership Trust Fund: Our Campership Trust Fund provides direct support to those who might not otherwise be able to afford a summer camp experience. Within the framework of the Campership Trust Fund, are four endowed Memorial Funds: Nick Brown Memorial Fund, Wilbert & Nina Braxton Memorial Fund, Frank T. Nicholson Memorial Fund, and Bill Dubovsky Memorial Fund for which donations can be further designated.
