Medfield Foundation 2018 Summer Camp Fund Appeal
Adults and children throughout Medfield have happy memories of summer camp. From a traditional experience in the woods to skill building or specialized camps, many Medfielders cherish these summer camp experiences and the friends they made there…How would you feel if you were left out of this experience?
Before the summer camp season begins, the Medfield Foundation (MFi) board wants the town to know that there is a highly significant need for assistance by families whose children yearn to attend camp, but because of difficult financial situations at home they would be unable to attend. It can be challenging to grow up in an affluent community but not have the resources of friends’ families.
The Medfield Foundation encourages you to make a tax deductible donation to help Medfield children attend summer camp! There are easy ways to make your donation or to find out more:
- Send your check to the Medfield Foundation, ℅ Medfield Town House, 459 Main Street, Medfield MA 02052. Please make your check out to Medfield Foundation, Inc and then write “CAMP” in the memo line!
- Use this link to donate: http://medfieldfoundation.org/donate/

MFi Treasurer, Abby Marble call: 508-361-9825 email: email@example.com
or Executive Board Member John Byrne call: 860-748-1447 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year, due to the severity of the need and number of children affected, the Medfield Foundation Board responded by creating the Children’s Camp Fund. Together with the generosity of our Medfield donors, $4,700 was raised which ensured 14 weeks of Medfield’s Parks and Recreation Summer Adventure Camp were enjoyed by a number of children, while others were provided summer swim lessons along with family memberships at Hinkley Pond. As a result of that success the Medfield Foundation Board unanimously voted to make the Children’s Camp Fund an ongoing fund, and this year hope to raise $5,000 so that this summer even more children who would otherwise be unable to go to camp can experience that rite of childhood summers!

The Medfield Foundation (MFi) is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation whose mission is to enrich the lives of Medfield residents, build a stronger community, and facilitate the raising and allocation of private funds for public needs in the town of Medfield. Since its inception in 2001, the Medfield Foundation has raised over $2 million to support community-wide initiatives in Medfield.
MFi was founded based on the realization that some residents were interested in contributing more than town taxes to support projects and services that would enrich life in Medfield. Annual fundraising revenue varies each year as the initiatives and needs in the town change. You are urged to go to http://medfieldfoundation.org/.
