We welcome all donations of any kind. We have some wonderful donors that have given money, time and resources. This camp would not be possible without all their generous support. Thank you!
Why Do We Need Your Donation?
“Thank you so much for my scholarship to the WDI this summer. Debate has been one of the most defining activities of my life, and these past few days have been an incredible experience. Debate is often limited to those with access to substantial financial support and this has not been the case with me. My school provides no funding, our team has no coach, and my family is unable to buy me fancy computers or laser printers. Your help has enabled me to grow as a debater and learn important strategies for this year’s topic.”
What Can You Give?
We’ll accept almost anything – be creative if you can! Here are some ideas:
Time, Student Scholarships, Laptops, Evidence, Videos, Lectures, Travel Stipends, Airline Miles
Where Does the Money Go?
Read our 2010 Annual Report and discover how far your resources go. We utilize all monetary donations for the camp directly. All administration is done on a volunteer basis. Our top priority is to include as many women in the camp as possible.
