How will Camp Rainbow Gold purchase the property?
We are fortunate to have a great foundation of generous supporters. Our community has been extremely generous and is the reason that we are able to provide camp at no cost to the families we serve. In addition to individual donations, we have been offered a $1,750,000 matching donation from a partial landowner and longtime Camp Rainbow Gold supporter to help launch campaign efforts. This challenge gift will be fulfilled once we secure an additional $2,000,000 in philanthropic support.
Are you spending too much on the property?
No. It meets our needs and we have an appraisal that indicates the property is valued at more than we are paying.
Where will the money come from to build a camp?
We are launching a phased capital campaign to fundraise for building the camp.
What is the long-term value of owning a property?
We will no longer have to pay to lease a camp facility, which is a substantial portion of our program budget. We will also be able to build a medical camp, which eliminates the cost of trying to supplement the facilities we currently lease. Most importantly, the greatest value is we will be able to support more children with cancer and their families.
