Many of whom or Many of who?

Many of who seems to make the most sense when you reason it out... which is why I'm confused, because most people say Many of whom. The sentence is:

The camp hosts 20,000 campers a year, many of who(m) would never have had such an opportunity were it not for your generosity

Update:

Can you explain, please? Because the who(m) is actually doing something -- not having an opportunity.

    "Who" and "whom" are both pronouns.

    It's tricky but the easiest way to remember when to use either:

    "Who" is the subject of the sentence: For example, "My mom is the one who tends to favor my odd sense of humor."

    "Whom" is the object of the sentence: For example, "To whom are you sending those flowers?"

    In other words the "who" of a sentence is doing something while the "whom" of a sentence is having something done to it.

    I hope this helps. :)

    Many of whom is the correct answer.

    Sometimes correct English words sound wrong or confusing

    It's whom. English is not reasonable.
