Camp Tecumseh Raises $7.8 Million Toward Its Goal

Camp Tecumseh (Brookston, Ind.) will mark its centennial year in 2024. In preparation, the organization retained Kinetic to conduct A Campaign for Camp Tecumseh. The Camp has already raised nearly $8 million towards its goal to renovate the ninety-six-year-old camp’s facilities and equipment. Groundbreaking has taken place for staff housing and cabins. A new dining hall will be under construction in the fall. The Mission of Camp Tecumseh is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.


The Salvation Army Central Territory Retains Hartsook

The Salvation Army Central Territory (Elgin, Ill.) provides assistance to a service area covering eight zips codes. The 135-year old Corps has retained Hartsook as its fundraising counsel. Based on a community needs assessment, the organization recently augmented its food pantry to provide basic necessities such as diapers, cleaning supplies and personal care products. Individuals and families facing financial hardships rely on the Salvation Army. Kinetic will assist the organization in advancing its life-changing mission.
