The Camp Manito-wish Endowment Fund is applied to a variety of worthy Manito-wish causes, from camper scholarships and facility maintenance to program enhancements and donor-designated projects. A portion of the investment income produced by each gift is used to benefit ongoing programs, while the principal remains intact.
Endowment donations can be made in a variety of ways and amounts, with certain contribution levels qualifying the donor for the honor of Fires of Friendship Circle membership. Memorial and tribute naming opportunities are also available, providing a lasting and fitting recognition for someone special in the donor's life.
The Board of Directors of the Camp Manito-wish YMCA has overall responsibility for managing these funds, including preservation, growth, and use. Investment of these gifts is delegated by the Board to the Investment Committee who contracts with professional fund managers to assist them.
If you are eligible for membership or interested in learning more, please contact the Development Office at 715-385-2312.
“I would like this program to be there for the next generation, the way I experienced it.”
