Join the Fireside Friends Monthly Giving Program

Be the Flame that Lights Camp All Year Long!

For the first time ever, when you sign up for The Painted Turtle’s monthly giving program, Fireside Friends, your donation will be matched each month, dollar-for-dollar, for an entire year! That’s twice the friendships, twice the adventures, and twice the magic for children with serious illnesses.

This amazing opportunity is made possible by David Colburn, a Fireside Friend and longtime supporter of The Painted Turtle.

With a matching donation, there’s no such thing as a gift too small! When these gifts combine on a monthly basis, it ensures sustainable funding. This tiny flame sparks Camp with excitement, silliness, and courage all year long.
