Capacity Building & Special Initiatives

The Summer Fund is uniquely positioned to influence the field and better support our grantees by serving as a convener, leveraging strategic partnerships and creating linkages to other major summer initiatives. Our goal is to leverage our assets to effectively and efficiently build, strengthen and sustain a high-quality summer program network.

We believe that capacity building is vitally important and supports our grantees in reaching the next level of operational, programmatic, financial, and organizational maturity. Summer Fund capacity building initiatives provide resources, trainings and workshop to enrich and improve the field, through educational and professional development opportunities, and by leveraging the collective expertise of the Summer Fund network. Our initiatives  are designed to respond to current trends and needs that emerge in the summer program field.

Our Impact

The Homeless Campership Fund greatly impacts the lives of the children and families we serve. Attending camp provides the children with an opportunity to participate in a safe, educational, and fun experience that allows them to enjoy being children, free from the worries that accompany living in a domestic shelter environment.
