Because others planned ahead, we continue making memories

In 1924, with only five campers, and surrounded by the remains of a farm in the New Hampshire woods, it was difficult for John Porter, working day by day to build his vision of a summer camp for boys, to plan for the future. Those early days were spent building Kabeyun cabin by cabin.

By 1973, after nearly 50 years of successful camping, he saw clearly that Kabeyun was the legacy he could leave to future generations of boys.

Today, because of his foresight, the Kabeyun land is forever secure against the threat of development, and the boys camp is secure in its status as a non-profit corporation, sustained by the caring leadership of the Porter Foundation Board of Trustees.

Won’t you take this opportunity to add your foresight to the tradition that has sustained Kabeyun for so long? You can help to strengthen Kabeyun’s future with a bequest in your will. Let Kabeyun be a part of your legacy for future generations as John Porter made it part of his for all of us.


Tax benefits

The John & Anna Newton Porter Foundation, which operates Camp Kabeyun, meets all the requirements of the federal government for status as a non-profit corporation, and is exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your bequest, like all gifts to the Porter Foundation, is tax-deductible.


Making a bequest

Cash bequests can be made toward the general, or scholarship endowment fund.

Gifts made to the general endowment will be used to strengthen Kabeyun’s ability to provide campers with excellent counseling and instruction, quality facilities, and a safe and varied program of activities. A bequest to the scholarship fund will allow the Porter Foundation to assist families with tuition who would otherwise be unable to afford it.

The Porter Trustees suggest the following language for use in wills:

I give $ (insert dollar amount) to the John & Anna Newton Porter Foundation, Alton Bay, New Hampshire, to be used as an addition the Foundation’s general (or scholarship) endowment fund.

Cash bequests designated for limited or specific purposes, or gifts of property, are also welcomed. Please contact Kabeyun’s director for additional information about designated, or restricted gifts.
