The Eagle’s Nest Foundation Annual Reports and Special Initiative Reports.
“At Eagle’s Nest there is an obvious love that shines through every person and every activity. It is a very special place. I wish everyone could experience what it feels like to be welcomed in a community with an open heart.”
Camp Parent, 2013
Dear Eagle’s Nesters,
It is a gift to be able to do what we do at Eagle’s Nest everyday and I am so grateful to every person in our community who works, volunteers and contributes with such loyalty, creating the feelings of belonging and connection for all children. The programs that we run through Eagle’s Nest Foundation are helping young people grow in profound ways.
2013 was a year of many successes for our programs. Most importantly, our campus was home to 518 campers, 21 Hante participants and 46 Outdoor Academy students – each one having their time to shine at 43 Hart Road. Through your support we were able to award scholarships to 93 campers and 23 students. We replaced freezers, refrigerators, water heaters and our main well pump. With a special donation we are able to rebuild the website you see today, a much needed upgrade. Every donation, no matter the size, has made a significant difference in what we were able to accomplish.
It is an exciting time for our organization. After months of preparation, including 15 community discussions across the country, we will host our Centennial Planning Retreat this month. The Board of Trustees and several staff members will take the weekend to step out of the day to day business of the Foundation and look at how we are going to position our organization moving toward our 100th Anniversary in 2027. Your voices will be carried to that gathering via your feedback at the discussions and the surveys sent out last summer. Look for more news on that front later this spring.
Thank you so much for your support this last year and making Eagle’s Nest Foundation part of your giving priorities. This community of people far and wide is doing tremendous work for our young people.
With deep gratitude,
