At Cazadero, our success is made possible thanks to you! Each year close to 25% of our funding comes from our community—donors, businesses and foundations—each of whom share a common belief in the value of Caz to inspire and enrich young people’s lives. We are grateful for our community’s generous support and make the most of every dollar received. In fact 84 cents out of every dollar now go directly into the delivery of our outstanding music programs, serving over 1,400 young musicians during a typical year!
- Reopening camp: We welcomed back campers and staff we missed dearly in 2020. We worked tirelessly to ensure we could operate safely during COVID while still offering the fun, inspiring program you know and love.
- Renewing our campsite lease: 25 more years of Caz! Our new lease allows us to remain at our iconic City-of-Berkeley-owned site identified by many as their summer “home away from home.”
- Appointing a new Music Camp Director: We’re thrilled to see how Carolyn Niehaus will apply her vast Caz experience and great enthusiasm to bring Caz to new heights!
- Breaking ground on a new accessible dorm: The accessible dorm is slated to open in Summer 2022 – the final (and exciting!) piece of follow-up to the landslide of 2016.
These new beginnings are very exciting, preparing us well for the future. But the last two years have been challenging for Caz financially, with a lost year of programming and a reduced camper cohort in 2021 (and with over $29,000 in extra costs for COVID measures!). Our expenses have outweighed our income for the second year in a row. Please consider supporting us!
