Support Belknap – Do your Share of the Work

For over 115 years, Belknap has remained committed to providing the development of young men and boys strong character, self-esteem, individual maturity and community responsibility. Belknap is a place where campers acquire for life the skill of leadership and the value of stewardship.

As with all non-profit camps, Belknap relies on alumni, parents, leaders and friends and neighbors for support. Tuition covers only 90% of the cost of providing a Belknap boy’s summer under the pines, so charitable contributions are essential. Belknap is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. There are a variety of avenues to give back.

Annual Fund
The Annual Fund provides between 8 to 11 percent of the current operating budget, and helps to fund all aspects of the Belknap experience including programs, leader salaries, facility maintenance, and financial assistance.

Timi-Hi Society
The Timi-Hi Society Recognizes Donors for giving to Camp Belknap consecutively for 5 or 10 years. Members will be acknowledged in the Annual Report on Giving.

1903 Society
The 1903 Society recognizes donors who have given $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund for five consecutive years, or $10,000 or more to a capital campaign. The Society honors your consistent generosity and investment in Camp Belknap’s mission.

Leaders Scholarship for Camper Tuition
The Leaders Scholarship Fund helps support camper scholarships on an annual basis. Each donation goes toward supporting scholarships for the following summer.

White Pines (Planned Giving)
The White Pines Society is established to recognize and honor individuals who make provisions in their estate for a gift to Belknap. A planned gift demonstrates lifelong support of Belknap’s mission and enables the camp to continue its rich tradition of making good boys better.
