Fundsy, the first and largest charity auction in the Boise area, presented a check for $240,000 to its 2016 beneficiary Camp Rainbow Gold on June 16. The money was raised at the Fundsy’s fiftieth anniversary gala on May 7 and at its golf tournament in September. Fundsy has raised more than $7.6 million for various community projects.
“Because of Fundsy and its supporters, Camp Rainbow Gold now has a state-of-the-art pediatric mobile medical clinic to be used at our summer camps, meaning we can help even more children – especially those who are more medically fragile,” said Camp Rainbow Gold Executive Director Elizabeth Lizberg. “Additionally, a portion of this contribution will help seed a future capital project to expand our operations.”
Camp Rainbow Gold serves Idaho’s children with cancer through free programs that improve spiritual, mental and physical health. The organization offers five camps, year-round teen support groups, and additional family events. In addition, Camp Rainbow Gold started a college scholarship program seven years ago that has awarded more than half a million dollars to campers seeking further education.
