Community Partners

The Summer Fund fosters collaboration among youth-serving organizations in an effort to leverage summer opportunities and engage underserved youth in targeted initiatives designed to promote summer learning, self-esteem building, and leadership and social development skills.

We identify and draw on the expertise of key community partners to deepen our impact and enhance our efforts to build, sustain and strengthen the summer program field as a whole. By leveraging these key partnerships, we are able to provide opportunities, supports and resources to enhance and improve summer programming for at-risk and underserved youth.

Our Impact

I am writing to let you know that my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her camp experience last week! Jane is a “slow-to-warm-up” kind of child, so it was especially wonderful to see her positively beaming at the end of each day and telling us all about her camp experiences, singing songs, and showing us her projects each evening. My husband and I are thankful to her counselors and to all of the staff for making it such a great week for her!

Through the cultural program, we have the opportunity to enhance existing relationships and begin new ones with community-based organizations and with colleagues from other cultural organizations.
