The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

Annual Giving Societies

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp Annual Giving Societies were established to celebrate the legacy of our visionary founder, Paul Newman, whose entrepreneurship for charity led to the creation of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. His relentless determination to do the most good through personal and corporate giving was an inspiration, rousing other individuals, corporations and organizations to follow suit.

With an unrestricted gift of $1,000 or more, you join a distinguished group of friends who ensure that seriously ill children and their families thrive in the exceptional programs of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp each year, free of charge.

The Societies honor donors of unrestricted annual gifts to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp at various levels. Each level honors the impact you can make and relates to iconic aspects of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and are recognized in our printed Annual Report.
