Goals & Impact Donate Now
The goals of the Fund include increasing the diversity of camp communities and to help provide the camp experience to families who otherwise could not afford it. To date, the Fund has granted over 300 camp scholarships in Fred’s memory to youths from around the country and all over the world. In recent summers, the Rittner Fund has provided tuition aid in excess of $60,000 to more than 32 deserving campers!
Campers receiving assistance from the Fund have had a profound impact on the camp community. They include Achievement Award winners, Divisional Citizenship Award winners, and recipients of the Founders’ Citizenship Award. We can proudly say that the Fund has had a hugely positive impact not only on the kids who receive assistance but also on the camp community as a whole.
we have set goals to expand our donor base and to seek more recurring online donations, while continuing to grow the capital of the Fund for decades to come. We are seeking at least 150 new (first-time) donors to the Fund this year. If you have not given to the Fund in the past three years, then you are considered a “new donor” this year! Any amount can make a big difference in the life of a young child hoping to spend the summer enjoying a fulfilling camp experience like the fabled ones alumni have shared tales of with their loved ones over the years.
