Fundraising

We are adapting in 2020 to Virtual and need Funding now more than ever!

To deliver a quality and transformational experience and keep fees manageable for families, we rely on outside funding to help bridge the gap between the actual costs of our Family Camp and other programs.

Your generous donations help us to:

  • Bring inspiring guest speakers & professional facilitators to camp
  • Contract teens and young adults, many of them adoptees themselves, as counselors and role models for campers
  • Provide scholarship assistance to families who could not attend otherwise

Two Ways to Donate:

1. Our CrowdRise fundraising platform:

Transracial Journeys Annual Funding Campaign

2. *A check and a stamp:
Send us a check made out to Transracial Journeys, and mail it to:
Transracial Journeys
905 Canterbury Rd, Unit E
Westlake, OH  44145
*Note: When you pay by check, 100% of your donation comes to us, while credit card payments through PayPal or CrowdRise incur a small processing fee.
