Giving to Troy Camp

Because Troy Camp is run entirely by student volunteers and we have no paid employees, 97% of all Troy Camp funds go directly to serving the children we work with. As such, you can be certain that your donation will have a direct impact on the community and the children of South-Central Los Angeles. The value of any donated items to USC Troy Camp are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.

We believe in the power of mentorship. As counselors, we volunteer our time because we have seen the impact that our enthusiasm and personalized attention can have in changing the lives of the students we work with. Every one of our campers has a unique story. They may face challenges in their lives and roadblocks on the way to success. During our time with them, it’s our goal to make sure that they have the tools to be agents of change in their own lives. We work to connect with each student, learn about their stories, and help them to feel that they are part of a larger family of people willing to lend a helping hand. We envision a future in which each and every one of our campers is confident in their ability to be agents of change in their own lives. To achieve these goals, Troy Camp depends on the support of our friends. You enable us to give our students the personalized attention and eye-opening experiences they need to grow as people. A gift of any size to our organization has the power to directly change the life of a child. So from the bottom of our hearts and the top of our lungs, thank you!
