How We Utilize Donations
All donations for any amount are greatly appreciated and enable us to continue fulfilling our mission of providing unique learning opportunities in recreational activities for people with disabilities.
For our most recent fiscal year ended September 30, 2016, 81.3% of our expenses were direct program costs primarily including vehicle and equipment costs, camp staff compensation and camp travel costs. The remaining 18.7% of our expenses were indirect organizational costs including management compensation, website hosting and maintenance, marketing, insurance, accounting, legal, administrative and other overhead costs.
We encourage those interested in supporting us to download and view our latest financial statements. Unless specifically requested by the donor, donations are considered unrestricted and all donations are confirmed with a receipt for tax deduction purposes (Our EIN is 56-2634247).
