Imagine a world where every single kid is encouraged to find their passion and is supported by caring adult champions. This is the world we're creating in our out-of-school-time programs. But we need your help to make sure every kid in our community has equal access to these valuable growth experiences. With your generous donation, we can increase scholarships, provide extra supports for a diverse group of youth, and ensure an inclusive environment for all.
What can your gift do to change lives?
Program fees only cover about 70% of our operating costs. We rely heavily on donations and grants to provide need-based scholarships as well as to ensure that we are able to pay our staff living wages so they can continue to grow professionally with us..
You have the power to close the gap. In a year when kids need social-emotional outlets and learning more than ever, the unmet demand for afterschool programming has skyrocketed: Currently, for every child in an afterschool program based in the state of Oregon, three are waiting to get in and nonprofit providers like Camp Fire are struggling to meet the need.
Camp Fire wants to be here for the many families who need our services, but we can only operate and expand with donor support. Help us bring hope to youth and ensure that young people continue to have a safe space to explore and grow.
Camp Fire Central Oregon values transparency in what we do. View our Form 990.
