Charitable Giving Programs Overview

In 2006, Donald Colburn and his beloved wife Kathy Ann Keenan, founded the Colburn-Keenan Foundation as a way to carry forward their legacy of community support and charitable giving. The development of the Foundation was the culmination of their dreams and remains a tribute to their life’s work. Through our charitable giving programs, we provide assistance and support to individuals and families, in the United States, who are affected by chronic inherited bleeding disorders and other chronic illnesses. The Foundation also supports community, local and national organizations and institutions in the United States, whose programs serve the needs of those with chronic inherited bleeding disorders and other chronic illnesses.

Campership Program

In line with its mission, CKF has developed this campership program to help families send their children to camps that specifically serve children affected by chronic illnesses, the value of which Donald and Kathy Ann were deeply convinced.

The Campership Program is open to:

  • the children of individuals who have received financial assistance from the CKF in the past 
  • applicants who are directly referred to the CKF by an appropriate camp that specifically serves children affected by chronic illnesses
  • applicants who are directly referred to the CKF by a social worker, case manager, or other appropriate professional source

Each child is eligible to apply for up to $500 of campership benefits per year.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Children up to age 18 are eligible to apply to the Campership Program.
  • Children who have a chronic illness are eligible to apply to the Campership Program.
  • Children who do not have a chronic illness but whose parent(s) or sibling(s) have a chronic illness are also eligible to apply to the Campership Program, as they are affected by the chronic illness.
  • Applicants must select an appropriate camp that specifically serves youth affected by chronic illnesses prior to applying for the Campership Program.
