SAGE STEAM Camp Supporters

Any level of support helps!

graph of percent of funding goal to reach $50KThe Southwest Alliance for Girls' Enrichment (SAGE) in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) camp is a unique summer camp for middle school-aged girls. Other than a $100 camper reservation fee, $900 per camper is needed to fully fund this week-long, residential camp. Total estimated cost: $50,000 to ensure the best possible camp experience. Donated items such as snacks, backpack items and other vital camp supplies are also greatly appreciated. In addition, we are seeking volunteers to donate their time and expertise to present a workshop or on-site activity (see: Be a Part of SAGE) and to identify Oklahoma girls to become campers (see: How to Become a Camper).  All support is needed to remove socioeconomic barriers, thus enabling girls from diverse backgrounds to have the opportunity to experience STEAM. 

Tax-deductible monetary donations to the SAGE STEAM camp may be made via the SWOSU Foundation here.

Both monetary and in-kind supporters will receive recognition, as listed below:
