Other Giving Options
Take a peek at our Amazon “Wish List” to see the items that we would LOVE to have at camp. While it is a “wish list” with some bigger items, a majority of the things listed are ones that are essential to our operation and must be purchased. Don’t forget to use Amazon Smile so a percent of the purchase comes backs to CHMK!
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.
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.
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. If you need more information on how to make a planned gift, please call 440-739-4095.
About Your Donations, Where & How They are Used
In 2021, 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.
Operating a facility that is over 93 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!
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!
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.
