ANNUAL APPEAL 2020
SUNRISE OVER WALLOON LAKE – LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
2020 has been an extraordinary year, as for the second time in 95 years we had to cancel our summer camp program, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was a very difficult decision, as it resulted in lost revenue – not only from camp but from our largest fundraiser, the annual golf benefit. We needed to reduce our year-round staff to half time, and even with this reduction and other cost-saving measures, there were on-going expenditures that are necessary to maintain minimal operations.
This is why we initiated an annual appeal earlier, in the hope that our donors will join us again in support of the amazing work we have done for 95 years. We were cautiously optimistic about the response, but our supporters and communities stepped up and we received more than we usually would have in a normal year from our Annual Appeal!
We appreciate your support and your generosity in helping us through this difficult time, and want all of you that helped us to know that your support makes it possible for us to move forward with our planning for 2021. We are cautiously optimistic for 2021.
The emphasis of the annual appeal was on supporting three critical needs; staff retention, capital stewardship and developing programming for the world of COVID-19. We invite you to review the giving options and give from your heart to support Camp Daggett as we move into our 96th year. Thank you for your support.
