Continue a tradition of Caring

It takes a special person to devote time and resources to a worthy cause. Joe Kruger was a special person, a beloved volunteer whose vision and tireless energy helped accumulate a significant endowment dedicated to supporting the future of organized camp and positively impacting the lives of thousands of children in the process.

The Kruger Endowment honors Joe Kruger and offers the opportunity for you to continue the legacy he started. The endowment fund is similar to a permanent savings account. The amount you give is not spent, but the earnings from the principal are available for American Camp Association projects or for a special purpose you, as the donor, specify.

The Kruger Endowment also includes a number of special funds, scholarship programs for ACA camps and memorial funds to honor the lives of those who made significant contributions to the camp experience. Several charitable remainder trusts and a pooled income trust are also available.
