Support Diversity

Sharing in DHF’s Vision

DHF seeks financial and in-kind support from individuals and organizations sharing our belief that our futures are bound together, and that honoring cultural diversity is essential to that future.  We welcome donations from donor advised funds and matching programs. We are also glad to work with your financial advisor or estate planner to discuss a charitable bequest or other planned gift. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more. DHF is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status. Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. We will send you a receipt for tax purposes immediately after we receive your donation. Thank you for supporting us as we promote diversity at our teen summer camp.

Allocation of DHF funds from 1998 through 2009

Deer Hill is small, efficient, and focused on its mission. We are proud of the fact that 82% of DHF expenditures have gone towards student scholarships, cross-cultural service projects and professional development for the leaders who deliver Deer Hill’s unique and powerful model of wilderness and service education.
