But what if $240 is too much for a budget strapped family? That’s where you come in.  Last year, donors gave scholarships to 46 children from low-income families.

Reason #1 to join this group that believes all children should have the financial skills for success.  You’re a hero to a very excited child:

Reason #2 is you’re a hero to a very grateful parent who writes:

“We are so thankful to the donors that helped (our child) attend Young Americans Summer Camps. It could not have been accomplished without their generosity.”
