Monetary donations are currently accepted for the following funds:

-Annual Fund – the Annual Fund provides money for building certain improvements to Camp Aldersgate every year.  This year, Annual Fund donations will provide:  new seating in the Great Hall, new tables in the Dining Hall, a new roof on the Solar Bath House, and painting the Retreat Center and Dining Hall.  Click Here to make a donation to the Annual Fund.

-Campership Fund – Camp Aldersgate has maintained a longstanding tradition that no camper is turned away because he or she cannot afford camp.  The Campership Fund helps to make sure that every camper who wants to come to camp can come to camp.  Last year, nearly one third of Aldersgate campers received assistance of some type – a total of over $30,000.  Donations are used in the current year to fund camperships, and any surplus is saved for future years.  Named campership funds can also be created to provide camperships into the future.  Click Here to make a donation to the Campership Fund.

-Endowment Fund – To ensure the future of Camp Aldersgate, generous donors have created a fund that will create income for Aldersgate in perpetuity.  If you would like to make a donation to the Camp Aldersgate Endowment, please contact Lee Carpenter at lee@campaldersgate.com.

-Planned Giving/Estate Planning – In cooperation with the United Methodist Foundation of New England, Camp Aldersgate is able to help you with your planned giving.  You can even give a gift to Aldersgate today that will provide income for the rest of your life!
