The fund was established to honor Joel while at the same time raising money to provide financial assistance for more children to attend one of the Florida College camps held each summer. The Hydes have kept the fund running with the support of colleagues and like-minded friends since 2014 – helping more than 300 children experience FC Summer Camp. They are honored to serve so many families in this effort.
Adopt Program Coordinator
My name is Lucy Cunningham and I live in Tampa, FL. I’m originally from Indianapolis, IN, but I moved to Florida in 2014 to attend Florida College. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Communication in 2018 and got a job working at the College right after graduation.
I work in the Advancement office as the Adopt Program Coordinator. I grew up going to the FC Ohio Camp and I have been a staff member at FC Carolina Camp for the last three years.
I am grateful for the memories I have from FC camps and I want to help give kids across the country the opportunity to attend FC camps that will point them towards Jesus and Florida College.
What We Do
While many of Joel’s campers have gone on to college, graduated, married and are even raising the soon to be campers, the influence Joel had on them remains. That is why a number of families joined together after Joel’s death to create the Joel Sloan Florida College Camp Scholarship Fund. We want to honor Joel while at the same time raising money to provide assistance to students who need financial assistance to attend one of the Florida College camps held each summer. Scholarship amounts will vary depending on the amount of funds raised and the number of kids who need assistance. But through the generosity of many of Joel’s friends who want to honor him, as well as those who think it important for kids to have a week of camp where God is first, we know that the needs will be met. Amounts raised above the need for tuition assistance will be provided to the Florida College camp program to help with equipment or other needs.
All donations will be used for tuition assistance or camp support. Administrative costs are covered by fund organizers. The Joel Sloan Florida College Camp Scholarship Fund is established as a Florida non-profit corporation and has a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status with the IRS. Donations are tax-deductible.
We hope you will join us in honoring Joel and providing opportunities for all kids to attend a Florida College camp. Joel, and F.C. camp, had a profound impact on our kids. Please consider donating any amount you can so Joel’s legacy is honored and every kid, regardless of need, can attend an F.C. camp.
Thanks for your help.
