We are Inspired!

We are extremely inspired by the generosity and friendship of so many people who give their support to the Venture Foundation and the fact that they come from all walks of life.  It would seem that they all share one thing in common, a deep appreciation for the important work done by Camp Venture in caring for Rockland County’s intellectually disabled and mentally challenged population.  Throughout the year generous contributions are received regularly from families and relatives of Venture’s residents, and from those who have their special person in one of Venture’s excellent day programs, or its evening and weekend recreation/ respite programs.  Moreover, so many individuals in our neighborhoods and communities, our local corporations and businesses, national companies, and family foundations have chosen Venture as their favorite charitable organization and continue to make their annual donations to the Venture Foundation.  Gifts range in size from $10 to $10,000 and much more so that in return, the Foundation is able to support Camp Venture’s array of vital programs and services.
Almost 100% of our folks here receive Medicare or Medicaid. Unfortunately, government reimbursements are not always adequate in meeting the actual costs of providing the top-notch, quality of care that Venture aspires to provide 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 Center, our Creative Arts and Recreation programs where the newest in technology and treatment offers enjoyment and enrichment to each person.  While you’re here visiting our website, we hope that what you see will inspire you to give, or if you are already one of our generous givers, to increase your donations to the Foundation however you are able.  
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyalty and compassion toward those who need our help.   We appreciate you!   

Yours in Spirit,

The Venture Family
