Settle Up Success!

Last month I wrote to you about the North Star Settle Up Challenge, a gift matching campaign that invited our camp alumni to match donations made by our current staff from their camp paychecks at the end of the summer for the benefit of Camp for All Kids.

I am very proud to announce that 60 North Star staff members donated a total of $2,934.00 and that 40 North Star alumni pledged matching donations totaling over who donated a total of $22,000, resulting in the Settle Up Challenge raising more than $25,000!

Thank you to our staff members and alumni for your generosity!  The funds raised will support Camp for All Kids camperships for kids from underserved communities to attend North Star and the other partner camps.

There is still time to contribute to the Challenge! Donations are being accepted through the end of September.

If you have pledged money to the Settle Up Challenge or want to make a pledge, you can “settle up” online by clicking here (designate gift to North Star and write in second box “Settle Up Challenge”)  or send a check written to Camp for All Kids, P.O. Box 50149, St. Louis, MO 63105 (please write in the memo line “Settle Up Challenge.”)  All donations are tax-deductible. You can learn more about Camp for All Kids at

Thank you again to our great staff and alumni for your donations and making the Settle Up Challenge a success!
