Your much-appreciated support is vital for keeping Birch Rock programs and traditions strong. Here’s how you can support BRC:
Refer a prospective camper for our various programs: Singing the praises of Birch Rock to your colleagues and family friends is our best form of advertisement. No one loves a camp as much as the boys who have enjoyed summers there.
Provide updated information about yourself and any alumnus: As we widen our horizons, the more we know about you, your family, and your camp experience, the better we can serve our camp constituency.
Send a tax-deductible donation: As a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, the following tax-deductible giving opportunities are available to support a diverse camper community, to preserve excellent programs and facilities, and to enable us to hire the most qualified staff members. Each contribution to Birch Rock presents advantages to the donor in keeping with his or her current financial picture.
Cash Gifts: For many people this is the easiest way to contribute to BRC. If you itemize your deductions, a cash gift is deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income. If your employer has a matching gift program, simply attach the matching gift information with your donation. Please make your check payable to:
Birch Rock Camp
30 Bellevue Avenue
South Portland, ME 04106
Gifts of Securities: One of the most advantageous ways of donating is to make a gift of capital assets. If you donate to BRC through this option, you may receive an income tax deduction for their full fair-market value. Consult your investment advisor.
Other Ways of Giving Include: Charitable Bequests, Real Estate and Life Insurance are also appreciated. Please consider BRC as a potential beneficiary of your retirement asset once you have provided for those you love.
Wish List: Each season Birch Rock creates a specific capital program ‘Wish List’ that directly benefits the current camp programs.
