You can help young people find their spark, lift their voice and discover who they are!
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma depends on community support to help us keep our fees affordable and scholarships available. Your gift allows Camp Fire to engage more local youth in life-changing, outdoor experiences.
Whether they’re participating in a Camp Fire Service Learning Club, Outdoor School, Camp DaKaNi or our After School Programs, kids learn how to cope with challenges and problem solve, to work with other kids who may think and look differently than they do, and to stretch their bodies and their minds while getting dirty and having fun.
Please help us send more under-served kids to camp so they might find their spark and embrace who they are, today. Thank you for your continued investment in our young people and for being part of the Camp Fire family.

Your Legacy Sustains Our Mission
Leaving a gift to Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma in your will/trust or via a beneficiary designation is a great way to ensure what we know as critical outdoor experiences are available to more youth in our community.
Most Efficient Gifts
An even easier way to leave a charitable gift is to name Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma as one of the beneficiaries in your retirement plan, bank accounts or life insurance policy. The gift will be tax-free, and if you’re subject to estate tax, your estate will also receive a charitable deduction to offset the tax liability. Most importantly, you can do this by simply calling your advisor and requesting a beneficiary change form.
Donating a highly appreciated asset to Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma can be among the most tax-advantaged items to donate. Contributing such assets may enable you to potentially eliminate capital gains tax on the sale of the asset, whereas Camp Fire, as a non-profit, will have no tax liability on the sale.
Income Producing Gifts
You could also guarantee yourself a lifetime income stream. You simply make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds or even real estate to Camp Fire in exchange for a charitable gift annuity. You receive an immediate charitable income deduction, a lifetime guaranteed income, and any funds left in the annuity upon your passing transfer to Camp Fire to support youth outdoor education.
