(Sharon, Ben and Jerry Miller)
We deeply appreciate our volunteers and financial contributors. Without your contributions camping opportunities provided through the Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund would not be possible. If you are interested in providing a contribution to support a low income camper we want you to know a little more about us.
The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund has NO expenditures for administration or development. Monies and time required for these activities are donated by the Founder, the Founder’s family and volunteers. All financial donations received are used to pay for qualified staff, rent, food, activity supplies and fees, and other direct expenses.
Each camp/retreat must have sufficient numbers of qualified staff and volunteers to meet the special needs of each camper and to assure the safety of the special needs individuals who participate. The presence and availability of a nurse is essential. Costs now average $250 a day for each camper. Most campers have extremely limited incomes and are unable to pay beyond the $25 application fee, which is nonrefundable. Financial contributions from interested individuals are used to meet these costs.
Perhaps you can give in this way:
- Sponsor 1 Activity Session for 1 camper--$25
- Sponsor a Special Event /Field Trip for 1 camper--$50
- Sponsor 1 Day of Activities Sessions for 1 camper--$150
- Activity Supplies & Materials--Your Choice/Surprise
