San Joaquin River Parkway and Trust Summer Camps Scholarships

In 2021 and 2022, The Gavin Gladding Foundation was able to facilitate multiple scholarships to the San Joaquin River Parkway and Trust Annual Summer River Camp with a total of $10,000 each year to go towards tuition for Valley kids to grow, learn and explore in the place that Gavin called his home for years. The SJRPT was such a significant part of Gavin's life, and we are honored to continue his legacy there.
