What We Do
Central’s Capital Campaign Department was voted into existence by the CCC constituency in the year 2000. Its purpose is to raise funds to improve the facilities at both Camp Wawona and the Soquel Conference Center, and to build an education endowment to assist families with scholarships towards their children’s Adventist education.
Our department provides assistance for receiving gifts towards Camp Wawona, Soquel, and the education endowment. We also facilitate gifts to other conference entities as needed or requested.
Phase I of the Capital Campaign concluded in March 2014 and Phase II began on April 1, 2014.
Central California Conference’s Capital Campaign is now part of Amazon Smile. Now, when you shop on Amazon Smile, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of all eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Find us at “Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventist.” Before you spend, go to smile.amazon.com, then to "Supporting" and select “Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventist.”
All donations will go to the Camp Wawona Road.
