The Painted Turtle

The Painted Turtle’s mission is to encourage children with life-threatening illnesses to be their best selves through camp experiences and support of their medical needs. The $35,000 donation from UCLA was made to the organizations camper endowment in order to send more campers to camp for free. The UCLA Fall 2014 Class’s evaluators found their $35,000 grant to the Painted Turtle to be a success because the funds were used as anticipated. An additional reward of $2,500 was donated in Winter 2016 after review in order to make fire and safety updates.
