We are dedicated to our community & effecting positive change for Long Beach.

Support Send-A-Kid-to-Camp 2022!

4/2022 – We are excited that the Long Beach “Big Five” (Boys & Girls Club, Camp Fire, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and YMCA) mountain camps will be completely open and operational for the first time in two years. Camping experiences provide Long Beach youth with opportunities to connect with their peers in meaningful ways through outdoor experiences like stargazing, rock climbing, archery, and lake and equestrian activities. The camp scholarships that your donation help make possible, are more important than ever.

DAFs, sometimes called charitable checking accounts, give donors an immediate, full tax deduction for their contribution and allows them to issue grants over time. Learn about a donor advised fund.
