As we prepare for 2021, there are still many uncertainties about whether a traditional Camp Wieser will take place. What we do know is this: Our Camp Wieser Staycation 2020 event, the alternative to our normal Camp Wieser, was wildly received in September, 2020. We proved to ourselves that we can deliver joy in challenging times with “Camp in a Box.” But it still takes money and volunteers. And we hold out hope that a traditional Camp Wieser will be possible next year. So throughout the remainder of this year and into next year, we will be looking to our Northern California communities to help us with donations of funds and in-kind services. Our December 3 virtual fundraiser is the major fundraising event of the year. If you missed that opportunity, we welcome your donations at any time.
Because we are 100% volunteer-managed, financial contributions are first and foremost. Throughout the year, we welcome donations through this secure website. You can donate any amount, or select a package to fund an entire family. If your donation is in honor of someone, please indicate so. You can even designate your donation as a monthly contribution.
Donate During Big Day of Giving
In 2020, The Sacramento area Big Day of Giving raised over $11,600,000 for local non-profits, including over $15,000 for the Me-One Foundation (that funds SIX families for Camp Wieser!). Sign up for our e-newsletter and follow us on Facebook so you won’t miss out on the Big Day of Giving 2021.
Donate Stock to the Me-One Foundation
The Me-One Foundation is now providing a secure, fast, and simple web-enabled service to donate publicly traded stocks to the Foundation. You get the tax benefit, as outlined by your tax advisor, and Me-One gets to support more deserving families! You can find more details here.
Raise Funds on Facebook
If you are a Facebook user, you can solicit donations to your favorite non-profit. The directions are really simple, and it works! The Me-One Foundation is registered as an official non-profit, so the process is ready for you to use. Just follow the easy steps and watch the donations accumulate. Some people do this to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or just because! Read how to do it here.
Donate by Check
To maximize your donation, rather than using a credit card, please mail a check payable to Me-One Foundation at PO Box 135, Roseville, CA 95678. If your donation is in honor of someone, please indicate so. The Me-One Foundation’s Tax ID number is 20-5853443.

We can never find enough ways to thank our amazing supporters whose contributions, both financial and in-kind, give us the means to send families to Camp Wieser each year. Some of our supporters find ways to contribute to our mission throughout the year. Here’s a quote from our President, Christine Gearing, about the Lyon Roseville office’s passion for charitable giving, specifically the amazing Sharon Crowley:
“The Foundation is very grateful for the support of the Lyon Roseville real estate office and to our tireless volunteer and Lyon Realtor, Sharon Crowley for her support in the community and at Camp Wieser. We could not continue our mission to Keep Life’s Scoreboard at Cancer-Zero, Me-One without this support.”
