Thank you, thank you to the many donors and parishes who answered pleas at the end of the year for support! YOU made the difference! The 2012 Annual Fund is officially closed and earned $73,866.15. This is well above Annual Fund contributions in 2011 totaling $50,783. This significant increase in donations not only made extensive Camp Chanco tuition assistance possible for our camper families (over $22,000 awarded in 2012), but also meant that Chanco was able to complete exterior renovations on all of Conference Center Lodge D last summer. Chanco celebrates 100% board member participation in our 2012 Annual Fund recognizing that our board no only supports Chanco through its volunteer efforts, but also with their finances. Thank you Chanco Board of Directors!
But we aren’t done yet…the Chanco board and staff have set a lofty goal for 2013 of completing the exterior renovations of both Conference Lodges B and C this summer! Once again, volunteers will save Chanco tens of thousands of dollars in labor costs, but Chanco will need $30,000 above its 2013 Annual Fund goal of $70,000 in order to make this a reality! Please help us make this possible! For questions or information about volunteering for future restoration projects, please contact Project Chair Doug Weymouth at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about Annual Fund contributions, please contact Development Coordinator Talley Banazek at email@example.com.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration of support for Chanco in the new year!
