The 2014 Annual Fund Goal is $300,000. These funds provide financial aid to CYO and Camp Howard participants and to continue the renovation and updating of Camp Howard. We need thousands of parents, coaches, CYO alumni, and other friends to include CYO/Camp Howard in their annual giving plan. Priorities Annual Fund donations are used to meet two critical needs:

  1. Financial Aid. 10% of CYO/Camp Howard youth participants, over 1000 kids, receive a total of $150,000 in financial aid based on need.
  2. Renovation and Maintenance of Camp Howard Facilities. We need at least $150,000 to update the water system, restrooms and provide a cover for the new basketball courts.
