Create Your Match 6 is the follow-up matching grant program for camps that completed Meet Your Match 6. This program was intended to help camps continue to cultivate and motivate their donors.
Working with their JCamp 180 mentor, each camp created a detailed plan for the use of all funds raised by the Create Your Match 6 program. Camps must use at least 50% of Create Your Match 6 funds for capital improvements and may use the remainder for capital improvements, scholarships, endowments or annual operating needs.
In Phase 1 (September 1, 2015 - March 31, 2016), each camp raised minimum gifts of $25,000 from donors (up to a $75,000 maximum). These gifts were matched 1:1 by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to create a pool of matching funds of up to $150,000. Pledges had to be paid in full by September 1, 2016.
In Phase 2 (ending December 31, 2016), the pool of matching funds of up to $150,000 were used to match 1:2 all eligible gifts of $3,600 or more. Gifts in both phases could come from new or previous donors and from individuals, families (spouse, parents, grandparents, siblings, and children), foundations, or corporations. Each phase 2 pledge must be paid in full by September 30, 2018, although no matching fund will be distributed until the gift payments meet the $3,600 threshold. All requests for matching fund disbursement by JCamp 180 must provide proof of payment and must be made through our on-line grants administration system.
Grants from a Jewish Federation, a program or facilities specific grant, or from the Foundation for Jewish Camp do not qualify for matching in either phase 1 or phase 2.
The Create Your Match 6 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.
