As we prepare for an incredible and safe summer, we have just learned some exciting news: to assist camps in this challenging time, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation announced a new donation matching program.
The Harold Grinspoon Foundation “All Together Now 2021” Challenge match is simple: all donations to Ramah Darom will be matched on a 2:1 basis up to $150,000; that is, for every $2 donation from our community the Grinspoon Foundation will provide Ramah Darom with an additional $1, effectively increasing all donations by 50%. As a bonus, if we meet this match and donations are paid by October 1, 2021 Ramah Darom will receive an additional $10,000 so please give today.
Looking towards the summer, we will be incurring many COVID-related costs including tents for additional outdoor program space, camper and staff testing, adjustments to our food service and the purchase of screens and fans, to name just a few. Your donation to the Ramah Darom Annual Fund, supplemented by the “All Together Now 2021” match, will help offset the costs of these additional expenses, support increased camper scholarship needs and ensure the safe return of campers and staff to our campus.
The Legacy of Ramah Darom
Ramah Darom is dedicated to providing exceptional experiences in Jewish living and learning to youth, adults, families and communities throughout the year. Our spectacular campus, magical summer camp and inspiring year-round retreats are supported by countless donors, like you, who are passionate about our vision.
Our Annual Fund provides financial support to campers allowing them to experience a magical summer steeped in Judaism, maintenance of our 185-acre facility and enhance programming. Endowments, Legacy Gifts and support of program-specific funds like the Yofi Fund and the Tikvah Support Fund, help us continue to support our diverse community and ensure our strong future. There are opportunities to give in honor or in memory of a loved one with a monetary donation, purchasing a brick, or donating a mezuzah in their name. And now, there is an easy way for you to set up your own Fundraising Campaign for Ramah Darom.
All donations – large and small – make an impact. We invite you to join us as we prepare for the next 20 years and beyond of Jewish living and learning by contributing to our giving opportunities listed to the left.
Your support is the lifeline that keeps our signature programs thriving, enabling us to impact thousands of Jewish lives every day.
Our mission at Ramah Darom is to offer exceptional experiences in Jewish living and learning for youth and adults, families and communities year-round. The Annual Fund is the lifeline that enables us to make these opportunities available to as many people as possible and is vital to the success and continuity of virtually every Ramah Darom program.
Our Annual Fund is the lifeline that supports scholarships, keeps our programs thriving, and assists with maintaining our beautiful campus. It supports all aspects of our services. Specifically, support for our Annual Fund strengthens these areas:
More than a campus, Ramah Darom is a magical place where thousands of children and adults have called home.
Your support of the 2020 Annual Fund ensures that a lifetime of memories and connections are made in an accessible, safe environment, nourished by trained and passionate staff.
More than 50% of our campers received financial assistance last year, and we anticipate this demand to continue. With your help, we can ensure that affordability is not an impediment that prevents people from experiencing the best in Jewish camping.
