Camp Legacy Initiative

JCamp 180, in cooperation with the San Diego Jewish Community Foundation (JCF), launched a pilot legacy giving program in 2008 to train teams at selected camps to attract bequests gifts for endowment purposes. Today, thirty camps have completed the three year training program and are continuing their Legacy initiatives independently. The remaining active camps are in various stages of their initiatives: ten camps are in their third year and eight camps are in the midst of their second year. By the end of 2012, these camps had nearly 3,100 individuals and families who had made future legacy pledges, collectively valued at $69 million.

"The Camp Legacy Initiative was a true gift to our camp. We so desperately needed a nest egg for our future and needed direction and guidance on how to achieve that goal. Without the Grinspoon foundation we would have never accomplished this in such a professional way."

-Rivkie Lafer, Chair, Camp Moshava of Wild Rose Wisconsin
