Raise Your Match Nets over $10 Million for Jewish Camping
Raise Your Match, a $1.95 million matching grant program, ended in February 2009. This program challenged 21 camps to secure up to $75,000 in $25,000 increments that was then matched 1:1 by the HGF to create a pool of matching funds. Camps then secured gifts of $3,600 or more using the pool of matching funds to match these gifts 1:2 or 1:3 depending on the ratio chosen by the camp.
Significant Results of Raise Your Match:
- $9 million raised in pledges from 20 participating camps
- $1.18 million matched by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation
- Total of $10.18 million going toward Jewish camping
- 413 individual gifts to camps
- Range of pledges: $3,600-$1,250,000
