Ways to Give
For 91 years, BLC has been a summer home to thousands of girls and young women. This continues to be possible today thanks to the continued connection and support of our alumnae, staff members, parents, grandparents and friends.
The Brown Ledge Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our tax ID # is 04-3351055. Gifts to our Annual Campaign may be designated to go where they are most needed, or you can allocate to any one or split among the following funds:
Mr. Mac Operations Fund
Camper tuition covers approximately 80% of the expenses incurred to operate BLC each summer. These donations go toward the other 20% and help assure the quality and future of Brown Ledge Camp’s operation and programs.
Marjorie P. Brown Scholarship Fund
Donations support tuition assistance to deserving young women who could not otherwise afford to attend Brown Ledge Camp.
Facilities Improvement Fund
With more than 70 buildings throughout camp grounds, there are always improvements, repairs, and renovations needed. Your gift to this fund will help keep the structures where campers sleep, eat, and play safe and ready for another season.

Online Donations & Automatic Monthly Giving
To make an online donation, click here. You can make a one-time donation or sign up to give an automatic monthly gift (under ‘Gift Type’ choose ‘Recurring Monthly Gift’.) With an automatic monthly gift, you simplify your giving and provide reliable support for camp. These gifts are processed the 15th of each month, and are ongoing until you choose to make a change.
Gifts of Securities
To give gift of stock, please use the following account information for the transfer:
Planned Giving Circle
Join other alumnae who have placed themselves in the Planned Giving Circle by leaving a bequest to Brown Ledge in your will. Or you can name Brown Ledge as a beneficiary of a revocable trust, life insurance policy or retirement plan.
You may find that the tax advantages of a bequest permit you to make a significantly larger gift than you had thought possible.
Brown Ledge Foundation Endowment Fund
The Brown Ledge Foundation board of directors has established an endowment fund to support the long-term financial health of Brown Ledge Camp, maintain scholarships, and support future programs. The BLF Endowment Fund will ultimately provide a reliable source of income where the principal remains intact, and distributions of earnings can be made to fulfill its purpose to BLC.
