To support Camp Alleghany’s mission by uniting, giving, and enriching alumni, friends, and campers through loyalty and stewardship.
CAAA Lantern Scholarship Fund
The Camp Alleghany Alumni Association is excited to announce that we have partnered with the Greater Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation(GVCF) to create the Lantern Scholarship Program. This program accepts tax-deductible donations which directly provide scholarships for campers at Camp Alleghany.
The selection of recipients, from applications received by the Alumni Association, occurs annually prior to the camp season. The CAAA Scholarship committee will make these selections and Camp Alleghany will be notified of awardees.
When you click the button below, a browser tab will open to the GVCF site that manages the CAAA scholarship fund. After you’re there, please follow the following steps:
1. Click the Donate Button near the center of the page
2. Select the amount you would like to give, and whether you would like it to be a recurring donation.
3. Click “Donate with Paypal” or “Donate with a Debit or Credit Card."
4. Where it says: “Write a note (optional)” or “Add a note”, please write “CAAA Lantern Scholarship”, plus an optional “in memory of” if you wish to donate in memory of a specific person.
5. Follow the instructions to complete your donation.
Thank you for your interest in the CAAA Lantern Scholarship Program. If you have any questions please email us.
Membership dues will fund capital enhancements that cannot be covered by camp tuition. This includes things like new Play Hall curtains, the Junior Camp Event Deck, a porch for the Cottage, etc. CAAA members have the opportunity to provide input on high-priority projects, but the final decision on these capital enhancements are determined by the CAAA Board of Directors.
The Scholarship Committee is responsible for raising tax-deductible contributions for the sole purpose of providing Lantern Scholarships to campers with an identified need for financial assistance. Through the sponsorship of the scholarship fund administered by the American Camp Association – a non-profit organization, Camp Alleghany, Inc. and CAAA will be able to solicit and use tax-deductible contributions to send deserving campers to Camp Alleghany. Anyone interested in serving on this committee should contact the Lantern Scholarship Committee.
The CAAA was incorporated as a for-profit organization in order to allow CAAA to raise money and spend it on capital enhancements for Camp Alleghany, also a for-profit corporation. The IRS will not allow a tax-deductible contribution be given to a for-profit corporation. However, the CAAA does accept tax-deductible contributions for the Lantern Scholarship listed above. This scholarship is processed by the Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation.
