Meet Your Match 7


Meet Your Match 7 is a challenge grant program that began September 1, 2015 and runs through December 31, 2018. The program is intended to boost the efforts of affiliated camps to raise funds to improve their facilities and thereby enhance the Jewish camping experience. Meet Your Match 7 follows other JCamp 180 challenges, which, since 2006, have helped over 115 camps raise over $85 million.

Key Guidelines

A sum of $75,000 will be set aside for each eligible* camp. Gifts of $10,000 or more that are made in support of capital improvements only and meet all other grant requirements will be matched by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation at a 1:3 ratio.



The Meet Your Match 7 program is administered by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation grants administration team using an on-line system. All matching grant requests must be submitted through the online grant management system that can be access by clicking on this link.  The grant management system acknowledges all submissions by e-mail.  It is the responsibility of the submitter to assure that documentation has been received by JCamp 180.
