2019 Annual Report
A Letter from Camp Camp Rainbow Gold Friends, As we write this letter, we find ourselves at an interesting moment in time. Here we are, needing to reflect on the last year and yet we are consumed with a worldwide pandemic, thinking about the future and the challenges ahead of us. It seems remiss not to mention all we are experiencing now. Our theme for the 2019 Share Your Heart Ball was “Beyond”, and we celebrated all the ways Camp Rainbow Gold has gone beyond a week of camp for our families. We are a year-round program and a community of support far beyond what anyone could have imagined 36 years ago. Now here we are looking even further beyond. We must let go of any expectations, make changes and find new ways to deliver our mission, to fundraise and to continue working on building Idaho’s Medical Camp. In this challenging time, it has been incredibly helpful to look at our past and what has made us strong. 2019 was another great year for Camp Rainbow Gold. We supported more than 400 Idaho family members through our camp programs, teen support group and college scholarship fund. There were 25 new families who took advantage of our programs. We awarded $50,000 in college scholarships to 21 young adults who have fought cancer. Our volunteers continued to show up and make magic for our campers by giving nearly 30,000 hours of their valuable time. We accomplished all of this at no cost to any of our families because of the support of our incredible community and supporters like you. In 2019, we also took a monumental step toward securing a forever home for Camp Rainbow Gold. We purchased 170 acres of property in Fairfield, Idaho. Hidden Paradise is an old golf course we will convert into Idaho’s first medical camp facility. We pulled together a team of volunteers and experts to develop a master plan and kicked off our capital campaign. In today’s time of uncertainty, we’re even more committed to providing our campers and other nonprofit organizations a safe, stable, permanent place to call home. Each year you help us reach more children and families and our foundation grows stronger. 2019 was a banner year and we certainly have reason to celebrate. We are hopeful, confident and determined that looking beyond current challenges we are still capable of reaching our goals and serving our mission. Things may be different, but we will still provide connection, love and fun to Idaho’s children battling cancer and their families for many more years to come.
Thank you for your support! Keep shining!
