Give the Life-Changing Gift of Camp!

Give the gift of Camp!

When Paul Newman founded The Painted Turtle camp, he envisioned a place where children with serious illnesses could kick back, relax, and “raise a little hell.” Each year, thousands of campers fulfill Paul’s legacy, embarking on journeys to reclaim their childhoods and rediscover just who they are beyond the illnesses that shape their lives. Each donation is greatly appreciated and will help fund the costs of meals, medical care, and mountains of fun. Camp is always free of charge.


Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Gifts of securities are a great way to support The Painted Turtle while providing you with a tax deduction for the current, full market value of the securities. There are three main types of securities that can be donated to camp: publicly traded stock in a corporation, shares in a mutual fund, or bonds. A gift of securities is often advantageous to the donor who owns stock with a low yield, have been held long-term, and have increased in value.
