This month we provide a potpourri of information and opportunities.
Those camps that want to find lost alumni and increase alumni donations should read Julia Riseman's article about our new Data2Donors program. This fall we will be offering the program to a limited number of camps. If the program has the results we expect, we will add it to our portfolio of offerings to a wider group of camps in subsequent years.
Also in this eNewsletter is a reminder about the PJ Goes to Camp funding for the Foundation for Jewish Camp's On Happy Camper program. Although the 2013 camp season seems like it just began, JCamp 180 is already preparing for next summer, and we want to make sure you remind any prospective campers about the requirements to qualify for a PJ Goes to Camp incentive next year.
The JCamp 180 family will change next month as two employees are leaving to take on new challenges. David Sharken, a Mentor for the past seven years, will become Director of Partnerships for the Proteus Fund, a social justice foundation based in Amherst, MA. Marcus Simon, our administrative assistant who has worked with GIFT and Legacy teams for several years, will become the Campaign and Development Coordinator at the Hitchcock Center for the Environment. We wish them both well in their new positions. We are committed to returning our staff to its full complement of Mentors and staff and expect to announce new staff in our next eNewsletter.
Enjoy your finals weeks of camp.
Director, JCamp 180
