Giving Tuesday 2019 – Thank You

The people who love Camp Golden Pond are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. On December 3rd, 2019, 46 amazing individuals came together to raise $14,572. We now have almost $25,000 available for our down payment. That is over 20%!

We want to extend a very special thank you to Nancy Habig for contributing almost $7,500.00 to our GivingTuesday efforts. Without Nancy, our camp would have shut down a very long time ago. Thank you for your ongoing support!

We also want to thank the following individuals who contributed $25 or more towards our GivingTuesday campaign:

Auchincloss Family Fund of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities on behalf of Mrs. Susan Achincloss, Carol Myers, Cathy Greensfelder, Erika Kretzing, Erin Pace, Felicia Zondlo Ko, Gwen Axtell, Holly Kennedy, Holly Wagner, James and Lisa Maras, Janelle Flanagan, Jill Bean, JoAnn Vender, Josh Habig, Lars Hanson, Laura Fulton, Lauren Lowe, Maria O’Brien, Mary Walsh, Megan Roberts, Nicolle Nicastro, Olga Grove, Pamela Nonemacher, Pamela Trout, Rebecca Thorsen, Sharon Bloom, Terry Podwika, Tina and John Chestney, Tracy Adams, Tracy Sepich, Trish Mikita

Our Thank You Plunge will take place on December 28th at 2PM. Please let us know if you will be joining us!

GivingTuesday shows us that every single dollar really does matter. Whether you contribute $10, $20, or $100, every single donation matters. Your $20 donation says that you care. Through matching grants we can take your $20 and double or triple it. When we combine all the $20 contributions together, we suddenly have tens of thousands of dollars.

If you missed GivingTuesday, you can still contribute to our Capital Campaign. I assure you, every single dollar matters. Every single donor matters. This holiday season, think of Lily, Pix, Danae, Emma, and the all other girls like them that are depending on us to save Camp Golden Pond.

Completing our down payment is a critical milestone to keeping the camp open and we have a very short time to do it. But if we can raise over $14,000 in a single day, I’m confident that we can get there.
