Camp Pinemere, Camp Galil (Habonim Dror) and Camp Harlem (Reform) have been named recipients of a Chai Match 2 challenge grant from JCamp180, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. The three camps are eligible to receive up to $18,000 in matching funds to renew camp facilities and provide operating and scholarship support. The camps have time until March 2014 to raise gifts and pledges that fulfill the camp’s portion of the matching grant program.
During the past eight years, JCamp180 has contributed over $11.7 million in matching grant funds to non-profit Jewish overnight summer camps throughout North America. The 25 participating camps have one year to raise matching funds in a two-phase matching campaign. The camps must use at least half of the overall funds raised for capital improvements.
