Donate through the PayPal Giving Fund (fee free)

If you have an existing PayPal account (or if you sign up for one), you can make a one-time donation using the PayPal Giving Fund (which is its own 501(c)3 entity and thus handles all tax-related acknowledgements)

Donate One-Time or Monthly using PayPal (fees charged to SGF)

Both one-time and recurring (for example, monthly)donations can be made through PayPal. There are modest fees associated with this method (2.9% + $0.30 per donation).

Amazon Smile

SGF is a member of the Amazon Smile program, which donates 0.5% of purchases made on Amazon.com. Just one half of one percent doesn’t seem like much, but as of June, 2021 SGF has received $2005.39 through Amazon Smile.

To register and get started, go to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/04-3565429. Then, just remember to enter the Amazon site through www.smile.amazon.com (rather than the usual amazon.com). Your shopping experience will be exactly the same, you will incur no additional charges or fees, and the kids SGF serves will smile in appreciation! Please keep in mind that SGF does not have any way to know who has shopped on Amazon, or what they have purchased (so we are not able to thank anyone individually). SGF just receives a transfer into its bank account on a quarterly basis and we have to trust Amazon that they are handling Smile disbursements correctly.

Every dollar donated to or raised by SGF funds the Summer Camp Scholarship Program, and thus promotes the safe and enriching experiences that are so crucial to healthy child development.
