Other Giving Options


Gifts-in-kind are products that help meet the needs of campers, staff and our facility. Camp Ho Mita Koda has several ways you can help us in this way.

Campership Program

The Camp Ho Mita Koda Foundation believes that every child who desires a place at camp should be able to attend – regardless of a family’s financial situation. With the help of generous donors, we are thrilled to be able to provide a limited number of need-based scholarships each summer.

Memorial and Honor Giving

A donation to Camp Ho Mita Koda is a thoughtful way to honor someone whose life has been impacted by Type 1 Diabetes. Your gift can recognize milestones in a individual’s life or express the sense of loss when someone loses their battle with this disease. Once your gift is received, the CHMK will send a card to the honoree or family acknowledging your gift.

Stock Donation

Gifts of stock may offer tax advantages and are a great way to directly impact the lives of our campers. The fair market value of your stock is tax-deductible to you, upon transfer, in the year it is donated – and we will be able to use the full amount of the donation to send children with T1D to camp. To donate stock, please consult your tax advisor. For more information or to make a gift of stock, please call us at 440-739-4095 to speak to the Executive Director.

Sponsor a Fundraising Event

Here’s a great idea! You or your company can be a sponsor for one of Camp Ho Mita Koda’s signature events. Your support will help us raise funds for our transformational camp programs while providing benefits to you. (Everyone loves a company that celebrates the fun of camp.) Your sponsorship will result in both happy campers and happy guests.

Leave a Legacy

To remember Camp Ho Mita Koda in your will or estate planning, we have simple language that we can provide to you or your estate planning professional. Your gift will have an impact that resonates for generations to come, ensuring that children with T1D will always have this magical camp to enrich their lives.

About Your Donations, Where & How They are Used

When you give to Camp Ho Mita Koda, your donated funds are used to run the year-round programs that support our mission of helping children living with Type 1 Diabetes grow in mind, body, and spirit through an outdoor camping experience that strengthens their confidence and creates a community of peers. The bulk of the money we receive goes directly to these initiatives.
In addition to our initiatives, a portion of gifts may be used to serve day-to-day needs, such as making specific product purchases to fill inventory gaps in camp operations. This thoughtful and effective use of your funds is a major reason why CHMK is recognized as a top charity and practices open book management. It’s a tribute to the financial efficiency, accountability, and transparency that Camp Ho Mita Koda brings to everything we do. Our first and foremost goal is to make sure that donations are used to make an immediate and real difference in our community.


In 2022, 45% of our campers were able to attend a CHMK experience because of the generosity of our financial assistance program, fully supported by donations from the community. This means that over 100 campers had the opportunity of a life-changing experience because of the love shown. The financial assistance provided each year is $60,000+. 

Camp Operations

Operating a facility that is over 94 years old comes with its own set of unique issues. We strive to provide world class facilities and are working our way there. Donations that support our maintenance team go directly to upgrading cabins, replacing bathroom fixtures, winterizing buildings, replacing roofs, and so much more!

Program Supplies

Each season we need to replace and/or upgrade equipment that has collected from over the years. This includes keeping our climbing equipment (harnesses, helmets, ropes, etc) in proper working order, rescue tubes for lifeguards, lifejackets, boats, and so much more!

Medical Expenses

Each season we utilize over $200,000 in medical supplies to support our camp operations. This includes glucose tabs, syringes, sharps containers, insulin, alcohol swabs, lancets, meters, strips, and so much more.

Get in Touch. Get Involved.

Camp Ho Mita Koda is only successful because of the hard work and dedication of our families, campers, staff, alumni, and community. We would love to have you as a part of the team and have many opportunitites for giving.
