Give in Honor or in Memory through the Tribute Fund

Celebrate a counselor, relative, friend, or colleague. Recognize an accomplishment or a milestone. Express your appreciation. When you make a donation to the Surprise Lake Camp Tribute Fund, you can dedicate your gift in honor or memory of someone. Simply select the “Dedicate my donation” box, and you’ll be prompted to enter additional information to finish your dedication before you complete your gift. Prompt personal letters of acknowledgment are sent for these (and all!) gifts.

Secure a Matching Gift

Many companies support causes that are important to their employees–and sometimes even their retirees. Matching gift programs typically double the donation at the very least! We will gladly help in the process of any matching gift program your company offers.
