Camp Legacy Initiative
Since 2008 JCamp 180 has sponsored the Camp Legacy Initiative to encourage camps to take advantage of long-term philanthropic opportunities from their alumni, parents, and other friends of camp.
Based on a highly successful model conceived by Gail Littman (z"l) at the San Diego Jewish Community Foundation, Camp Legacy is a three-year program providing training, guidance, and financial incentives to inspire camps to plan and launch a program to actively seek bequests and other after-life gift commitments to benefit camps' endowments.
To date, 56 camps have participated in JCamp 180's Camp Legacy Initiative. 41 have achieved their three-year Legacy goals and incentives while seven more are actively pursuing their goals. Approximately 3,580 individuals and families have made legacy pledges to camps representing an estimated $76.5 million in future commitments to their favorite camps. Harold Grinspoon and JCamp 180 are very proud of these achievements!
