The timing of the COVID-19 pandemic is hitting Jewish summer camps especially hard. Camp leaders are planning for all contingencies, including the very real possibility that camp will not open this summer, even as they have already invested considerable funds preparing for this season. Few camps have endowments or reserves sufficient to make up for the revenue shortfalls they will face if Summer 2020 is cancelled. Without significant community support, many Jewish summer camps could fold.
The Harold Grinspoon Foundation, a longtime leader in the field of Jewish camp, sees this moment as the time to dig deep. The HGF board has approved a new $10 million infusion of funds for overnight camp as a matching grant. The grant, called All Together Now, offers camps the chance to leverage the $10 million to raise matching gifts from donors who know the value of camp and its importance for the future.
