Allen Bass working toward 2021 after

COVID-19 forces cancellation of season

The Allen Bass Fund board expressed its sympathy over the cancellation of the current season at Camp Bil-O-Wood due to the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, the board will work toward building its scholarship fund in order to assist a greater number of needy campers when Camp opens again in 2021.

ABF board members feel the best way the Fund can help the Camp is through its traditional role as a scholarship provider. By entering the 2021 season with very healthy scholarship fund ABF can boost the number of campers and, therefore, boost the health of Camp, too.

For the 2020 season, the Allen Bass Fund has received $28,714.74 in donations from 48 generous supporters. Those funds will be rolled over into 2021 to give Allen Bass the ability to fund a larger scholarship pool.

Since the Allen Bass Fund is recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization all donations to the Fund are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Since it started in 1987 the Allen Bass Fund has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to scores of needy campers through the generosity of its donors. If you would like to donate – any amount would be appreciated – mail your check, payable to the Allen Bass Fund, to:
