For many, asking for a Legacy gift can feel uncomfortable. But this ask should be thought of as an invitation to friends of camp (alumni, parents, grandparents, donors, etc.) to give back to something they love, something they want to ensure continues to provide magical experiences in the long-term.
You are providing them a meaningful opportunity, and they are helping provide long-term financial stability to camp.
The resources in this section will help both staff and board members find Legacy prospects, learn to respond to common objections to Legacy asks, and make successful Legacy asks.
For those donors who have already committed to a Legacy gift, you can find helpful resources about Stewardship on the next tab. Remember that the ask is only the first step in a long-term relationship with Legacy donors.
