The Arcadia Foundation

What is the Arcadia Foundation?

The Arcadia Foundation, which was created 1991, receives planned gifts, invests them, and then uses the income for projects to help guarantee the long-term stability and growth of Camp through program enrichment, capital improvements, and financial scholarships. This past year the Arcadia Foundation (over $500,000 in assets) provided $6,000 to improve the Map Room in the Inn Lobby and help create the new Archives Exhibit in the Assembly. Imagine if we had $60,000 – $100,000 annually to invest in Camp’s ministry. As the cost of running Camp increases and our 90 year-old facilities age, we will need this revenue stream in order to continue to offer a quality, life-changing experience at affordable rates. A healthy and growing Arcadia Foundation is critical if we want Camp Arcadia to be a sacred place for future generations.

Become a member of the Legacy Builders

The Arcadia Foundation has launched the Camp Arcadia Legacy Builders – an initiative to encourage all of us who love the camp to include Arcadia in our estate plans. The creation of the Legacy Builders gives all of us the chance to have our estate gift recognized, thus providing encouragement to others. We will charter the Legacy Builders in June of 2014 with a plaque recognizing all who have committed to joining by that time. Estate gifts can include gifts through your will, IRA, life insurance policy or a charitable trust, or even an outright gift of cash or stock. Get more information about planned giving here. Each of us is in a different financial situation. The great part about estate giving is that it can often provide advantages to the donor or donor’s family. We have attorneys across our constituency, who can be helpful to set you in the right direction. When you choose to join the Legacy Builders, you will be joining the list of families (see the list on the bottom of this page) who are passionate supporters of Camp Arcadia’s ministry.

Read why these Legacy Builders chose to include Camp Arcadia in their estate plans:

“Camp Arcadia, to me, transcends the generations of our family. My grandparents were there in the 1920’s, my family will be there in 2020, and my great grandkids will be there in 2120. I can’t think of a better way to leave a gift for my kids and future generations than to invest in my community, my church, and Camp Arcadia.” – Jon Leetz

“It is relatively easy to leave cash and possessions to our heirs. It is much more difficult to give them consistent, reliable, supporting and loving Christian experiences. The Camp Arcadia Legacy Builder program gives us the ability to do just that by helping to ensure the continuing ministry and community of Camp Arcadia.” – Norm & Sue Ulbrich
