By making a donation to the Great Day Fund, your gift to the Fund qualifies for deductions for income and estate tax purposes. The Great Day Fund is part of the Community Foundation of Henderson County, which is a qualified charitable corporation under Section 501©(3) of the Internal Revenue Service.
A gift to the Great Day Fund of any amount is valuable and appreciated. For our centennial year, we are offering a unique opportunity. Any gift of $1,000 or more will be commemorated on a bronze plaque at the entrance of the new Council Fire. As always your donation is tax deductible and will help provide the camp experience to a deserving new generation.
