Why I'm Giving

I am hoping that this is not the first item you are reading in this most recent edition of the Winnebago Alumni Newsletter.

Good.

So you know about our wonderful reunions in New York City, the $500,000 capital campaign that we announced there, and our goal to permanently endow four full-summer scholarships by the end of the year 2020.

When we began to discuss the idea of a capital campaign, I knew that I wanted to be a big part of it. And when I thought about who else could join me in making a major contribution, I thought of Nikos Liakounakos. Together, Nikos and I have pledged to donate $100,000 over the next five years. It’s our way of grabbing the flag in the first minute. We’ve done it because we believe deeply in the value of a summer at camp. We believe deeply in our scholarship program. And we believe deeply in its mission: to give the gift of camp to boys who otherwise couldn’t attend and to provide those boys with the priceless experiences that we’ve all had.

There’s another flag in that same pin box and an endless number of pins. They’re waiting there for whoever wants to get them.
How about making that charge? How about making a difference?

Nikos and I have pledged because we can, because we see a value in pep and vim—a value in being on Eagle Row, a value in singing “Goodnight Winnebago” each night at the end of assembly. And we both know that those experiences never die. My last summer as a camper was 1975. Nikos’s last summer was 1993. Decades later, we still carry those memories, those lessons, those values with us every day.

I am hoping you can see the value in camp as well. I am hoping that you can show how much your summers were of value to you. I am hoping that you will join our campaign and give back to a place we love by giving someone else the opportunity to love this place and call it home, as we do.

With Winnebagan Love & Friendship,
Uncle Jim
