Other Ways to Give

Matching Gifts – Do you know that you can double the impact of your donation to Camp Discovery?  Many corporations offer to match gifts ranging from $25 to $5,000.  Check with your employer or human resources department to see if your company will match your donations to Camp Discovery.  This simple step could double your gift's impact and make an even greater difference in young lives at Camp Discovery!

Become an Event or Program Sponsor -  Interested in linking your company to one of our events, programs, or provide an annual scholarship in your company’s name? Camp Discovery offers excellent marketing and corporate benefits to our corporate partners.

Endowment Fund - Donations to Camp Discovery’s Sowing the Seeds Endowment Fund helps to ensure that Camp Discovery can sow the seeds today to cultivate future generations tomorrow. Your endowment gift will be invested by the Camp Discovery board annually, and your donation will remain a living legacy to benefit the future of children and youth in our community.

Non-Cash Gifts - By giving a gift of appreciated securities, you may avoid capital gains tax while enjoying an income tax deduction for the current fair market value of your gift. A gift of real estate yields a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the property and can help you avoid capital gains tax.

Legacy Circle – Through thoughtful planning and stewardship, Camp Discovery founder Donna Johnson (DJ) had a dream for Camp Discovery and we want you to share in that dream. By making a planned gift to Camp Discovery you will join others who have made a future commitment to ensure ongoing support for our work and mission. Planned gifts include a bequest through a will or trust, or gifts from retirement accounts or life insurance policies, as well as life-income gifts such as Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts which allow you to make a charitable gift while living and receive a predictable source of annual income. Remembering the children at Camp Discovery in your final wishes is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy! 

Camp Discovery at His Acres is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you need additional information on any of the opportunities above, please contact Joanna Weitzel at joannaw@campdiscoverysc.org or (803) 754-2008.
