Support CJL

 

Thank you for your interest in making a tax deductible donation to Camp Juliette Low! Your donation will help secure the longevity of Camp Juliette Low so that we may continue providing girls with outdoor experiences that promote leadership and self-confidence.

 

There are four funds to which you can designate your donation. Click the links to donate online, or mail a check to CJL (summer and winter addresses are in the footer, below). Please indicate the fund on the memo line of your check.

 

Endowment Fund – CJL has worked to build the Endowment Fund, which will provide income for the ongoing financial future of the camp and its nonprofit purpose. You may be familiar with this idea because universities and colleges also use endowment funds. Our goal was to bank one million dollars by CJL’s 100th anniversary in 2022. We have accomplished our goal, because of the determination and generosity of many!  We continue to add to this for the future of CJL.  Interest from the fund may be reinvested or used in cases of emergency.

 CJL Alumnae Association Fund – The money collected during reunion goes into the Alumnae Association Fund. First, the fund is used to pay for the fall and spring CaJuLo newsletter mailings. Then, any excess funds are spent on specific purchases for camp, usually for program areas and/or for the staff. For example, the Alumnae Association has helped fund new stainless steel countertops in the kitchen and infirmary (2018), new harnesses for the climbing wall (2019), and the reconstruction of the old Laurel Ledge Unit Kitchen (2017).

David Laney Scholarship Fund – Since we began awarding Scholarships in 2015, 32 young women, who might not have been able to, have spent a week or two sleeping in tents, making new friends, and growing in confidence in the beautiful, natural setting of CJL. The interest generated by this fund’s principal is used to cover our yearly scholarships. 

General Operating Fund – Any donations to CJL that are not designated for a specific purpose usually go into the general operating fund. This is the fund used for day-to-day operating expenses: electric bills, food expenses, payroll, program equipment, etc..

 

In addition, you can make a donation in-kind to CJL. Please contact the camp office (info@cjl.org) if you have items to donate. Every year, camp needs the following items:

  • construction paper
  • white copy paper
  • white poster board
  • small propane cylinders for Coleman lanterns (16.4 oz)
  • hornet and wasp spray
  • Clorox wipes
  • hand soap (pump and refill sizes)
  • children’s boots for horseback riding (sizes 12-6, used are fine)
  • goggles for the pool
  • brooms

 

Please consider remembering CJL in your will. Contact camp to find out more information.

 

As always, we greatly appreciate your support!
