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.

We kicked off our fund drive Feb. 20 with an envelope in the paper. Since then, we’ve received 479 donation totaling $42,294 toward our goal of $190,000 to send 770 kids to weeklong overnight camps this summer. Donations are welcome throughout the year. We are grateful for you donation 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 501©(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.
