How Does Your Online Giving Stack Up?

Mark Gold, Director of JCamp 180
This Month's eNewsletter highlights online fundraising. JCamp 180 Technology Mentor, Kevin Martone, has prepared a series of articles based on best practices and our recent effort to donate online to all JCamp 180 affiliated camps. Please make sure to ask your JCamp 180 mentor about your specific experience trying to contribute to your camp.

In this month's e-newsletter, we focus on providing you with useful fundraising tactics and strategies from our JCamp 180 Mentors.

On a sad note, JCamp 180 lost a member of our family with the passing of Gail Littman on December 21st. Gail was the driving force behind the Camp Legacy project, and many of you knew Gail from her participation in Legacy training sessions and her contributions to the Legacy program at many of our annual conferences. Gail's sudden and unexpected passing at her home in San Diego came as a shock to all who knew and loved her. Gail leaves her husband, Dr. Marshall Littman and a daughter Rebecca. May her memory be for a blessing.

Finall, a reminder: applications to apply to the Chai Match 2 program are due February 18th. Apply Today!

Warm regards,

Mark Gold, Director JCamp 180
