Scholarship Appeal

Donate to the Scholarship Fund 

It’s been more than a year of uncertainty, information overload, and endless screen time. Kids – and people of all ages – have never needed time in nature more than in the past year. As we move toward a healthier 2021, KNC programs provide just what they need: safe, outdoor experiences that build lifelong connections to the natural world.  

Your support of the KNC Scholarship Fund makes these experiences possible for local families facing financial hardship. From summer camp to community-based programs, it will take upwards of $20,000 to meet the greater Kalamazoo community’s need for KNC scholarships in 2021. These scholarships give children of all ages and backgrounds an equal opportunity to experience fun, friendship, and discovery at KNC. 

With your help, KNC will continue reaching underserved audiences with increasing frequency. In recent years, critical partnerships have allowed us to develop outdoor experiences that serve increasingly diverse cultures. This translates into serving our community more completely than ever. Your support of the KNC Scholarship Fund makes it possible. 

Thank you for giving as your means permit. Every gift, small and large, directly impacts a local child and family – perhaps more than one!
