YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley

Summer Camp Fund


Far too often, we are powerless to affect the kind of change that we wish to see in the world. As individuals, we have a limited amount of influence we can exert on the injustices and inequities that we experience and that we see other experience. As a community, however, we can begin build the resources that can create the world that we wish to see. That is what we are asking of you today.

The YWCA offers an innovative multi-disciplinary all-girl summer camp that allows girls to build a community, explore future educational opportunities and careers, expand their worldview, learn about nutrition and fitness, and create lifelong friendships.

83% of the girls said that they know of a college that they want to go to because of our camp.

94% of the girls agree that they know how to budget because of our camp.

90% of girls feel more confident that they know how to spot an unhealthy relationship.

85% of our girls leave camp saying that they will make healthier decisions about diet and exercise.

This camp makes an impact!

However, this camp is also our biggest fundraising challenge of the year. We need $26,000 to cover the costs of the 2016 Girls' Empowerment Summer Camp. Your donation would cover: food, supplies, scholarships, and admission and transportation to the places that make this summer camp an amazing experience for our girls.

YOU HAVE THE POWER tomake the 2016 Summer Camp great!

To fully fund this program we only need :

2 X $10,000 + 1 $5,000 donors

26 x $1,000 donors

104 X $250 donors

520 X $50 donors

DO NOT HESITATE TO DONATE. Every single dollar counts.


Here is what your money will be funding:

   

We need at least $14,000 for scholarships for the girls to attend the camp. This is our TOP priority. Most of the girls thatattended last year would not have been able to attend any summer programwithout a scholarship. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE ABLE TO HAVETHE BEST SUMMER EVER.

   

We need at least $6,000 for transportation (public and private) to get the museums, career case studies, university tours, and local attractions that will make up most of the camp. One round trip bus transportation costs on average $500. Without your help we will not be able to visit places like UCLA or the Getty museum simply because of transportation cost. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO GIVE THEM THESE EXPERIENCES.

We need at least $3,000 for supplies (plastic utensils, art supplies, tech supplies) for art and science workshops. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO TEACH THEM NEW CONCEPTS AND SKILLS.

We need at least $3,000 towards serving a healthy breakfast and snacks to the girls. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO HELP GIRLS LEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR BODIES AND MAKE GOOD DIETARY CHOICES.

YOU can make this camp a success. YOU can change a girls' life. YOU HAVE THE POWER.
