The Arizona Daily Star’s Sportsmen’s Fund Send a Kid to Camp program raises money so children from low-income households and military families can attend overnight YMCA, Boy Scout and Girl Scout camps and Camp Courage burn camp for little or no fees.

We’ve received 1,087 donations totaling $110,884 toward our goal of $190,000 to send 770 kids to weeklong overnight camps this summer. We’re $79,000 shy of our goal with camp just beginning.

Donations are welcome throughout the year. We are grateful for your donations and continuing our thank-yous today.

Your contribution is tax-deductible, qualifying for the state’s working-poor charitable tax credit of up to $400.

The Sportsmen’s Fund, one of the oldest 501c (3) charities in Southern Arizona, was founded in 1947.

Since then, thanks to Arizona Daily Star readers, we have helped to pay for 36,548 children to go to camp.
