The Redbird Endowment

Rockbrook Camp has, since 1921, been a special place for girls, a haven for them to explore the beauty of nature, to grow by meeting new challenges, and to make some of their closest friends. It’s a beautiful place that generations of girls and women now consider their home.

Camper and counselor

Each year there are many girls who would like to attend Rockbrook but are unable because their families cannot afford the camp’s tuition. In response to this financial need, and in keeping with the spirit of the Rockbrook community, its campers, families and alumnae, we have created an Endowment Fund whose primary purpose is to award camper scholarships.

The Redbird Endowment is a restricted fund, a permanent trust dedicated to making a Rockbrook experience possible for under-privileged children. The Endowment is managed by the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, who invests donations allowing the trust to grow over time. Only earnings from the Endowment are used for scholarship awards, ensuring that generations of girls in the future will benefit from the Endowment. Funds from the Endowment cannot be used for Rockbrook’s general operating budget.

Please consider making a charitable gift to the Redbird Endowment. Your tax-deductible donation will directly support this special need-based financial aid program and help make it possible for a deserving child to attend Rockbrook.

It is the generosity of Rockbrook’s alumnae, parents and friends— the Spirit of Rockbrook —that sustains this program and promotes its mission to help girls experience the wonder of camp.
