Camp Odayin is a non-profit organization fully funded by corporate gifts, fundraisers and donations. The only charge for a camper to attend is a $25 registration fee. In order to continually provide and expand our programs, we rely on support from people like you. Your gift will continue to give many families a place where kids play, worries rest and fun happens! For that we are grateful. Camp Odayin is a 501(c)(3) organization and charitable contributions are tax deductible. Our Federal EIN is 41-2014358.
“Meaghan absolutely loved camp; I only wish we would have sent her sooner. She is already counting the months until next summer. I was more anxious and nervous than she was and the first thing she said as we were driving away from camp on Friday was, “I wish I was still there!” After four open heart surgeries, hospital stays, double valve replacements, numerous CAT scans, MRIs and ECHOs over the last 15 years, Meaghan came back a more confident and mature teenager. Your program gave that to her. Thank you!”

When you donate a stock that has gained in value to Camp Odayin, you do not have to pay capital gains tax and you can itemize a tax deduction for the entire amount of the stock. For example, say you bought 100 shares of a stock at $10 a share a couple of decades ago. Now that stock is worth $50 a share. What was worth $1,000 when you bought it is now worth $5,000. Normally, if you sell the stock, you have to pay long-term capital gains taxes on the $4,000 gain that you made. If you donate the stock to Camp Odayin, however, you are exempt from the capital gains tax. You can also itemize the entire $5,000 current value of the stock on your taxes. Camp Odayin can choose to sell the shares immediately, for $5,000, without paying taxes (due to our tax exempt status), or it can hang on to the shares in the hopes that it will yield more down the road.
