Do It Yourself Fundraising for Camp Magruder

If you're on facebook or other major social media app, you have no doubt seen people raising money on their birthdays and other special occasions for non-profit causes. You may have wondered if you could do something like for Camp Magruder. Well, we're glad you asked. 

We have put together a guide to simplify the process of doing your own fundraising campaign for Camp Magruder. You can decide how much you want to raise, how long you try to raise the money, and who will see it. Anything you raise will get us closer to our overall fundraising goal, and it can be as simple as sharing several posts on social media. 

The project we've highlighted for Spring 2022 is our efforts to raise the pay scale for our Resident Counselors. These donations will better equip us to improve our pay rate to these counselors who do such incredible work throughout the summer. 

To create your sharable campaign, you'll start a profile on with our fundraising platform Fundrazr. You'll get connected with our Growing Our Summer Counselor Wages campaign. Here's more info:
