#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and other widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
This year #GivingTuesday will be celebrated on November 30, 2021.
In recent years your generosity has helped us successfully build the Gaga Pit and Traverse Wall as well as install water bottle filling stations and mitigate the financial impact that Covid-19 had on 4-H Camp Shankitunk in 2021. We truly appreciate your continued support of positive youth development through camping.
This year, we are asking for your support in a new way. We are launching a #GivingTuesday campaign and asking our staff, camper families, alumni, and community to make a donation in the amount of $20.21 (or more) to the newly established CCE Delaware 4-H Camp Shankitunk Fund through the Community Foundation of South Central NY.
Inspired by generations of kindness and generosity, it is our hope to create what will become a self-sustaining initiative through this fund. Our goal is to raise $150,000. It’s an ambitious goal and an important one. Our first mile-marker is to raise $20,000 by August 2023. Together, we can do hard things! This fund will be used primarily to make repairs and capital improvements at camp.

$20.21 is a suggestion; a donation in any amount would be welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Ready to donate? THANK YOU!
