Fundraising

Our 2017 Annual Campaign is Underway!

We rely on outside funding to help bridge the gap between registration fees and the actual cost of our Family Camp and other programs. Your generous donations help us to:

Provide partial scholarships to families who could not otherwise attend camp.
Bring inspiring guest speakers & professional facilitators to camp.
Bring teens and young adults to camp as counselors and role models for campers.
Plan and host other activities throughout the year, including an art contest, Station Hope Family Weekend, and the fall parent support/discussion group series.

Two Ways to Donate:

1. Our CrowdRise fundraising platform:

2. *A check and a stamp:
Send us a check made out to Transracial Journeys, and mail it to:
Transracial Journeys, 3589 Strandhill Rd., Shaker Heights, OH 44122.
*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.
