Members of the Vespers Society have confirmed their long-term commitment to the mission of YMCA Camp Coniston by planning a gift bequest in their wills and estate planning to help children and families benefit from a Coniston Experience for many years into the future.

Our endowment provides a stream of income to the operating budget each year and gives us the ability to plan and make strategic decisions with financial security. Camp’s unrestricted endowment income is combined with earnings from restricted named endowments and works in tandem with the Camp Annual Campaign to ensure funds are available to:

• Provide financial assistance to a wide economic spectrum of families to make Camp possible for those who would not otherwise be able to attend.

• Support staff and leadership development.

• Address ongoing maintenance and upkeep of facilities.

By helping to grow Camp’s endowment, you aren’t just helping Camp Coniston this year or next; you are helping to ensure that the traditions, purpose, and commitment to excellence will influence and enhance the lives of campers for generations to come.
