Camp Legacy Initiative
In 2008, JCamp 180 (known as the Grinspoon Institute) created the Camp Legacy Initiative, under the tutelage of Gail Littman from the San Diego Jewish Community Foundation, to motivate Jewish summer camps to secure legacy gifts from loyal donors. The Camp Legacy Initiative is financially supported by the Areivim Philanthropic Group.
Currently 48 camps across the country participate in the Camp Legacy Initiative. To date they have received nearly 2,300 individual and family legacy pledges valued at $59 million.
