Make a Gift to Camp Chi

In celebration of Camp Chi’s centennial summer in 2021, let’s strike a MATCH to help ensure the vitality of Camp Chi and the strength of our community for another 100 years. Your gift today will be matched 1:2 by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation All Together Now campaign to protect Jewish overnight camp. This means for every $2 you donate; a generous funder matches with $1. All Together Now Matching Grant program is made possible through JCamp 180®, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. The Harold Grinspoon Foundation is a steadfast supporter of Jewish life and recognizes the well-documented, life-long impact of Jewish overnight camp.
