C.O. Mollenhour Conservation Camp has achieved their goal in a fundraising challenge issued by the Kosciusko County Community Foundation.

Camp Mollenhour raised $10,000 for their endowment, and will now complete training to receive $40,000 in matching funds.

It’s part of the Endowment Challenge 50 launched in May of 2018 in celebration of Kosciusko County Community Foundation’s 50th anniversary.

Chosen for the challenge were Anthony Wayne Boy Scout Council, Baker Youth Club, Camp Mollenhour, CASA of Kosciusko County, Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan, Joe’s Kids, Kosciusko County 4-H Council, Kosciusko Literacy Services, Lakeland Youth Center, and the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts.

“Camp Mollenhour has been serving youth in our county since 1938,” said Suzie Light, Kosciusko County Community Foundation CEO. “The growth of their endowment will enable them to continue teaching young people about the environment and conservation for many years to come.”

As of this month, all 10 youth-serving organizations have met their goal for the EC50 Challenge.
