Capital & Endowment Campaigns
This campaign seeks to establish an unassailable trust of $500,000 that will be used to generate an income in perpetuity for Camp Abby.
The camp will seek support from people who are in a financial position to provide it and who believe in what the camp does.
The board also intends to create an endowment fund which will be funded in whole or in part by bequests people designate for the camp in their wills.
As donations and endowments are received, they will be added to, and protected by, the trust.
the success of these campaigns will ensure that Camp Abby can continue to operate debt-free. meet any financial challenges with confidence, and continue to help future generations of children and youth for years to come.

You can help by joining the Abby 200 Club!
The goal of the Abby 200 Club is to have at least 200 individuals or groups make an on-going monthly or annual commitment so the camp will be able to maintain and enhance its program into the future. The current challenge for the camp is to build a sustainable financial base to permit adequate staffing and funds for on-going maintenance so Camp Abegweit may fulfill its mission and ministry.
The financial goal is to raise a minimum of $48,000 each year which can be reached if the Club has 200 members made a commitment to contribute $20 each month-(less than a dollar per day per month).
