An endowment to the YMCA ensures our capacity to strengthen the very foundations of this community for years and generations to come. Regardless of the programs in the future, we will be there to meet the need through our commitment to always nurture the potential of youth and teens, to help improve our community’s health and well-being, and to support and give back to our neighbors.

Tax savings and other benefits may be available through a variety of current and deferred endowment plans, and future commitments may be directed to specific programs, locations, or to the Y’s work across the community.

Some have chosen to support the YMCA through:

  • An outright gift
  • Naming YMCA of the Inland Northwest as a beneficiary of insurance or retirement funds
  • A bequest in one’s will
  • A memorial gift. We would be honored to accept your future commitment to the YMCA.

YMCA Camp Reed Endowment Fund

What is it you remember most about YMCA Camp Reed? Was it sharing during Sticks Ceremony around the campfire at the end of the week, Critter Talk, Chapel, or fun with campers and staff? We know Camp Reed has touched many lives and it is a unique experience that has a lasting impact. Now you have the opportunity to pass on these positive encounters for many more campers in the years ahead.

Our goal is to ensure the future of Camp Reed by building a designated endowment fund to support the powerful work of camp. As a beneficiary of the Camp Reed experience, you are uniquely qualified to recognize the potential that camp can offer to many in the years to come. Your support strengthens the foundation of Camp Reed by building long-range financial stability and ensuring that countless children can just be kids for a life-changing week at camp.

Contributions can be made in two ways: a gift today, or a future gift. Your endowment gift provides lasting resources by preserving the original gift intact and using the interest gained each year for either camperships or infrastructure improvements.

For more information please contact Carly “Calypso” Garras, Camp Reed Executive Director at 509 720 5631.

Limited edition reproductions of paintings by renowned artist, Spokane native and former Camp Reed counselor, Doug Safranek, have never been offered before. While Doug’s original work now sells for the high five and low six figures, four paintings owned by Steven, also once a Camp Reed counselor, and Julie Jones have been magically reproduced by modern technology to capture the amazingly intricate detail of Doug’s work.

​Only 25 prints of each painting, signed and numbered by Doug, are available for a one time donation ranging from $400 – $800. All proceeds from this endeavor benefit the Camp Reed Legacy Endowment. For more information or to purchase one of these prints please contact the Camp Reed office509 777 9622.

What is it you remember most about YMCA Camp Reed? Was it sharing during Sticks Ceremony around the camp fire at the end of the week, Chapel,  capture the flag, or fun with campers and staff? We know Camp Reed has touched many lives and it is a unique experience that has a lasting impact. Now you have the opportunity to pass on these positive encounters for many more in the years ahead.

A Word from Tracy Walters

Dear Camp Reed Friends,

The intent of this letter is to let you know about the formation of the Camp Reed Endowment. This endowment will ensure that kids continue to experience the positive impact in their lives that Camp Reed has given thousands over the years past.

One of the highest honors of my life was the time I spent as a director at Camp Reed. When Leta and I accepted the task of operating/rebuilding Camp we had no idea that it would be the foundation for so many of the relationships with people we love and care about today, more than 40 years later.

Over the years and across the country you have come together many times, become leaders in the community, championed new causes, and supported important endeavors.

I am asking you to come together again, one more time. It is with great humility that I have accepted the role of Honorary Chairman of the Camp Reed Endowment. With your help, this endowment will have a lasting impact. Imagine with me, that 100 years from today, through your generosity and kindness, campers will still tell us that Camp was the greatest week of their lives.

Details are enclosed and can also be found at campreed.org. I remain,

Tracy Walters
