How To Support Wabun

Annual Fund

Wabun’s Annual Fund supports important areas of need for Wabun including administration, programming, maintenance, equipment, and scholarships.  Please help us reach our goal by donating to the Annual Fund.

Endowment Funds

With a gift of $25,000 or more, a named endowment fund can be established. You can also donate to support our existing endowment funds. For information about establishing a fund or contributing to an existing fund, please contact Phoebe Knowles at

  • Wabun Foundation General Endowment Fund: These funds are not restricted allowing for great flexibility in support of Wabun.
  • Gail and Hardin Coleman Family Scholarship Fund: This scholarship fund will support campers with a preference for candidates who live in Philadelphia, Boston, or other Gateway Cities in Massachusetts. 
  • Bill Olmsted and Dave Thompson Scholarship Fund: Bill Olmsted and Dave Thompson started as trip staff for Camp Wabun in 1966 and 1968 respectively. They were life-long educators, dedicated to improving the world for others; thanks to the generosity of Philip Rockwood who provided the seed money for this fund, the primary focus of this scholarship is to facilitate access to Wabun for Temagami First Nation/Teme-Au-gama Anishnabai members, First Nation, and other children of color.
