Give Local Bay 2019 Fundraiser
April 1, 2019
In the end, we are all remembered for our acts—for the lives we touch and by the causes we advance. I invite you to consider creating a lasting legacy by including Camp Fish Tales Endowment fund in your long term plans. The word “endowment” simply means that your legacy gift will be managed by the Bay Area Community Foundation and invested for the benefit of Camp Fish Tales. The earnings from these investments will be contributed to CFT every year and then used by CFT to fulfill its mission.
Help us build our endowment fund at Bay Area Community Foundation so that we are able to provide services for many generations to come.
Donate on May 7th and your gift will be increased by an incentive pool and prizes! The more you help our nonprofit raise, the more incentive money we receive. Thank you for supporting our entire community when you GIVE LOCAL!
Each year Camp Fish Tales is blessed to provide more and more campers with the opportunity to enjoy our outdoor camping experience. CFT is situated on 66 acres in northern Bay County, and has a multitude of accessible recreational activities and trails. We are a 100 percent barrier free camp for people of all ages and all disabilities.
I’d like to take a moment and share with you our favorite memory from this summer at camp. The counselors were preparing our campers for one of their favorite recreational activities, swimming! One of our campers that week was a wheelchair user who typically is not very verbal. His counselor put the life jacket on him and wheeled him down into the deep part of the water. She then lifted him into the water and he began floating on his back and at that point he very clearly exclaimed, “I’m walking!” It was a beautiful and emotional moment that serves to remind us why we do what we do here at Camp Fish Tales.
On behalf of our amazing non-profit, we and the campers THANK YOU!
