THE STORY:

We are so excited to be participating in the Art Van Charity Challenge again this year! From April 4 through April 25, we will be competing with other charities in the challenge for the chance to win the Grand Prize of $100,000, as well as an additional $80,000 for charities that place 2nd through 5th! Last year, we raised nearly $25,000 in the Art Van Charity Challenge and we’ve set a BOLD goal to double that amount this year! Can you help us reach our BOLD goal of $50,000?

How You Can Help

Click “Fundraise for This Campaign” to create your own fundraising page. Then share your page via email and social media with everyone you know. Of course, we always appreciate individual donations, but if you become a fundraiser and reach out to your entire network (friends, family, coworkers, and employers), the fundraising potential of our campaign increases drastically. Thank you in advance for your support. Together, we can do this!

Who We’re Fundraising For

At Camp Blodgett, everything we do – including this fundraiser – is for the kids! We believe in the power of kids, so we do everything we can to empower them to live their best lives. We do this through educational and recreational experiences that promote social responsibility, encourage academic success, and support the development of healthy self-esteem. And we are always striving to make sure that these empowering experiences are accessible to all kids in West Michigan, regardless of family income or background. That’s why we bring kids together from all over Kent and Ottawa counties – kids from a diverse range of racial, ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds – and offer school year programs free of charge and summer programming on a sliding fee scale based on household size and income. We build kids up in classroom, community, and outdoor settings, giving them the support, confidence, and skills they need to succeed academically and as leaders in our community. Most importantly, we help children believe in themselves and imagine bigger, brighter futures for their lives. In these ways, Camp Blodgett contributes to empowering the next generation of community leaders and making West Michigan a better place to live for all residents.

Proceeds from the Art Van Charity Challenge will help support our Summer Camp and STEM Academy programs THIS summer! The list below provides just a few examples of how BIG a difference your donations can make in the lives of kids.

-$10 donation = two screen-printed Summer Camp t-shirts w/tie-dye supplies

-$50 donation = educational supplies for one day of STEM Academy lessons

-$200 donation = one chromebook computer for STEM Academy research and math lessons

-$400 donation = “campership” that enables us to give one child one amazing week at camp

-$2,000 donation = 5 “camperships” for 5 awesome kids!
