We invite you to make a difference in the lives of young people and help us to improve our communities, one person at a time. The experiences gained at an overnight summer camp can change a child's outlook on life, and allow them to see their world through a new lens.
HCF is an all volunteer board and organization with no paid staff.
Money raised goes directly to support camperships.
Get involved today with the Hawkeye Campership Fund. A little effort goes a long way with HCF and with the deserving youth who benefit from the money raised by HCF and its donors. Check out the many ways you can become part of the solution today!
To make an immediate difference, click here to donate funds which will be used to provide camp for a deserving youth this summer. You may also schedule a monthly recurring gift to keep your generosity going all year long!
Many employers support matching gifts for their employees who donate to charity, which can double the impact of your gift! For assistance with requesting a donation match, we recommend asking your HR or benefits coordinator.
NOMINATE A DESERVING YOUTH
HCF is always looking to reach out to new deserving children. Let us know if there is someone in your community, perhaps it is someone that you coach, teach, or a neighbor, who deserves this opportunity but whose family cannot afford residential camp. Use our contact form to get in touch and we will follow up with you!
Funding for youth in need comes from many places! If you know of a possible funding source (such as a local charity, faith community, or service organization) that might sponsor a child, please let us know or recommend us to them.
Come and meet Board Members, Parents, Campers, and Staff at our next fundraiser! We would love to see you and would welcome your participation. We could use your help greeting people, organizing things, or wrapping it all up afterwards.
GIFT AN ITEM OR SERVICE
Some of our fundraisers include silent or live auctions. If you would be willing to donate an item, such as the use of a vacation property, or a service, you can help to drive our fundraising efforts forward.
Perhaps the simplest thing you can do right now is something you're already doing: browsing online!
It's easy to help by replacing your current default search engine with GoodSearch. When you do this, each time you do an internet search you'll be earning $.01 for HCF. It may not sound like much, but if 100 people do even 2 searches a day it quickly earns more than $750 per year for HCF! Click here for easy instructions.
