Donate to Stockton Folk Dance Camp

We appreciate donations of materials for the Library, money for scholarships, and supplementary funds to keep Camp functioning smoothly year after year. Over 95 percent of each donation goes directly to programs. This is your chance to invest in the future of our dance movement and become a contributing member of our family.  Stockton Folk Dance Camp is a 501-c-3 nonprofit, so all donations are tax deductible. No contribution is too small. Remember us in your trust planning too!

Donate by check or use PayPal which allows you to designate a fund for your donation. While we offer PayPal for your convenience, please be aware that PayPal assesses charges on all transactions, and those charges add up to hundreds of dollars per year. Writing a check may be a bit more time-consuming and involve an envelope and a stamp, but ensures that your ENTIRE donation comes to Stockton Folk Dance Camp.

Scholarship Funds

The Scholarship Fund assists dancers who otherwise could not afford to come to Camp. Scholarship recipients are expected to perform a job at Camp. Donations help send a deserving dancer to Camp, which provides the extra help that keeps Camp running smoothly. In addition to the general Camp Scholarship Fund, there are specific scholarships in honor of Bruce Mitchell, Bora Gajicki, Jean Brown and Oscar Faoro. When making a donation, simply indicate if you would like the funds to go into a particular account.
If you prefer to write a check, make it payable to Folk Dance Camp and note the specific scholarship fund (if restricted).
