Welcome to the Venture Foundation website!
Reflecting upon fiscal year 2012, we are extremely inspired not only by the generosity and friendship of our many Foundation supporters, but also by the variety of donors whose chose to contribute to Camp Venture. Generous contributions were received from relatives of Venture residents and their loved ones, families of clients in our day and weekend respite programs, local businesses, national corporations and family foundations. Gifts received ranged in size from $10 to $20,000, and over $100,000 was contributed to Camp Venture for its many vital programs and services.
While our donors come from all walks of life, they all share one thing in common: a deep appreciation for the important work done by the Camp Venture staff in caring for Rockland County’s mentally challenged special needs population.
Almost 100% of our clients receive Medicare or Medicaid. Unfortunately, government reimbursements are not adequate in meeting the actual costs of providing to-notch, quality care for our people. Fortunately, your charitable contributions help offset the shortfalls. They pay for the extras such as running the Summer Camp, the Therapeutic Equestrian Riding Center, our Creative Fine Arts Program and medical procedures not covered by insurance.
On behalf of the combine Boards of Directors of Camp Venture, Inc., and the Venture Foundation, Ltd., I want to thank you for visiting our website. I hope what you see will inspire you to give or, if you are already a donor, to increase the size of your giving!
Peter J. Curtin
