2017 Summer Camp Scholarship totals: Our beloved domestic violence, child protection, and homeless outreach partners are already reaching out for children in their care. For the summer of 2017, we awarded $95,416 in camp scholarships, enabling 65 children to attend 333.5 weeks of camp at 14 different camps, 79 weeks of which are for overnight camp. THANK YOU!
2016 and Annual Appeal: Many people have told us how much they enjoyed reading our 2016 year-end summary. So far we have raised $14,430.15, including $546.80 from six brand new donors (thank you!) We will update these numbers periodically. As a comparison, in 2015, we received $28,529.29 in year-end donations, including $1,293.60 from brand new first-time donors. Our 2015 campaign yielded the most we've ever raised in a year-end campaign - thank you!!! One hundred percent of every dollar donated goes directly to supporting summer camp scholarships for children who are homeless, exposed to violence or refugees. Since SGF is a 501(c)3 public charity, your gift is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law and will be acknowledged accordingly.
2017 Circle of Remembrance and Strength: The annual Circle of Remembrance took place as usual on April 27 at 6 pm, in front of Oak Hill Middle School. We invite you to downoad and print your own personal copy of the We Remember booklet.
