It costs Wayfinders an average of $3,600 per year to sustain one student in our program. In addition to providing all students with summer opportunities, all tax-deductible donations support our year-round enrichment activities, educational programs, and mentoring activities, and help outfit our scholars for their summer camp experiences.

Camp experiences remain the largest portion of our budget. Over 30% of our annual budget is spent on camp tuition alone.

We are truly grateful for gifts of any amount, and there are many ways to give:
