The Camphill School wishes to recognize the corporations that support our school and students not only financially, but also through their time, talent, and products. In order to distinguish these deeply committed organizations, The Camphill School is pleased to announce a Corporate Partners Program. An organization will be considered for Corporate Partnership when it provides three or more of the following: financial contribution, product (in-kind) donation, volunteer mobilization – employees and/or customers, grant awards, expertise (board membership, committee participation, advisory role), or EITC Program commitment.

Whilst PECO has provided a lead sponsorship for the Camphill ProAm almost since its beginning its truly remarkable gift has been its investment in people. PECO employees are empowered to make a difference in their local communities: the men and woman who keep our lights on have served as leaders of our board, experts in maintenance processes for our facilities, contract and design experts for our construction projects, and personal donors to the projects that help our children blossom. Nourishing that kind of individual employee power to change lives in our community is a hidden quality that PECO doesn’t shout about. Our school has been changed for the better in so many ways: we are proud to be giving our Corporate Partners Award to PECO in 2016.

Our signature fundraising event would not be in existence if not for Tennis Addiction. With a desire to support a local organization, Anthony found The Camphill School and he immediately knew it was the perfect place to put his energy, time, talents, and treasure. The rest, as they say, is history and nearly 25 years later, the Camphill ProAm has become the school’s biggest fundraiser and has grossed $3 million for the school and our students. In addition to founding the event, Tennis Addiction has provided countless volunteer hours from dozens of staff, club members, and their children. We are humbled by all that Tennis Addiction and Anthony have done for our students throughout the years and look forward to the future as we further build on the success of the Camphill ProAm.

Customers Bank has supported The Camphill School for over 15 years. The bank has been a true partner not only in financial support, but past Board and Committee service as well. As the bank has grown and transformed over the years, their dedication to our school has grown and has never wavered.
Customers Bank is our largest Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) contributor and has provided over $100,000 to our financial aid program over the past three years. In addition, to this incredible support, they have been a lead sponsor of our Gala. At last year’s event, they, along with their President and Chief Operating Officer Dick Ehst, offered to match the donations made during our live appeal and helped motivate others the give. This made it possible for our community to purchase all of the items that were requested to enhance the programming for our students.
