The Annual Fund

What does the Annual Fund do?

  • Enhances our Leadership School programs
  • Provides scholarship support for the boys and girls camps
  • Supports our 9/11 Family Camp
  • Helps support our Veterans Camps and Cancer Retreats
  • Underwrites our ongoing operational costs

Tuition to our Leadership School, where we serve over 8,000 Maine kids annually, does not cover the full cost of this program, and every year we rely on the generosity of alumni, parents, grandparents, and others to help bridge the gap. (we underwrite on average over $500,000 for this program every year) In addition, our boys and girls camps offer scholarships for many kids each year.

Summer camp scholarships are available and funded partially through The Loyalty Fund (Kieve) and The Shirley Westerman Fund (Wavus). Please see the links to the left for The Loyalty Fund and Online Giving to support these scholarship funds.

The Trustees have established an ambitious goal of $650,000 for our Annual Fund. This group of dedicated volunteers provides significant leadership every year for the drive. To be truly successful, we also need your generous participation. Every gift, regardless of size, is important and deeply appreciated.

Will your employer match your gift? Many companies participate in matching-gift programs for charitable gifts made by their employees. Check with your employer's Human Resources Department to see if your generosity will be made even greater through a match by your employer.

The campers, students and staff of Kieve-Wavus thank you for helping to make our Annual Fund a success. Please feel free to use our secure online giving link to the left for your donation, or send your annual fund donations to:
