Giving to Hale Reservation
Hale Reservation relies on the support of generous donors to fulfill our mission. Maintaining and managing an excess of 1,137 acres of land, over 60 buildings and structures, and providing programs for more than 7,000 children and 420 families annually is an expensive task. This unique mix of land management and preservation with comprehensive educational programming is valuable – worthy of your support.

“Thanks for your openness, flexibility and hard work supporting our participants in the Aspire Teen Programs. Thanks for making a difference.” - Staff members from Mass General Hospital’s Aspire Program which focuses on children with Asperger’s Syndrome
The Annual Appeal helps make up the difference between fee and tuition dollars and the actual cost to conduct all the programs, maintain the facilities and manage the land at Hale Reservation.
Hale Reservation asks donors, friends and neighbors to consider a gift to support our operations. Thanks to the generous response, we have been able to add play spaces for children, conduct more high quality training for staff, upgrade facilities, and offer additional programs for participants.
We hope you appreciate all the things that make Hale special and will consider a donation today.
“Hale has been one of the most wonderful summertime experiences for our family. We love the sense of safety and security while watching the children swimming, boating, and enjoying themselves with one of the most conscientious group of staff members I have ever had the good fortune to experience.” – Membership Beach family member
Campership & Financial Aid
In 2014, Hale Reservation raised nearly $170,000 for campership, financial aid and subsidies. These funds provide opportunities in all of our program areas – Hale Day Camp, Membership Beach, Education and Adventure and Agency Camps. In 2015, we will aim to raise $200,000 to support these efforts.
Gifts to the Campership and Financial Aid program support our current year needs unless designated to the James E. Earley (JEE) Campership Fund. The JEE Fund operates as an endowment that supports only campership and financial aid. A portion of the interest earned from the account is used annually to support need for that year.
“My daughter was shy before Hale. But now she is a totally different girl because of the experiences she has had. Hale is awesome.” – Parent of an HOLA (Hale Outdoor Learning Adventures) camper
Hale Reservation has endowment of just over $1,000,000. The Endowment Fund principle will remain in tact while a portion of the interest earned is allocated to annual operations.
“Thanks a million for helping James feel comfortable during his teary times at the bus stop and on the bus. This being his 1st camp experience was so good he wants to return next summer!” – Parent

“Follow me to Hale Reservation. You will see the nature around you. See the leaves falling on the ground. When leaves are falling sometimes they fall on you. When you are walking listen for the wind whistling in the air. Smell the air around you. You will feel calm and quiet in the woods. So will you follow me to Hale Reservation?” Robert – age 9
