We know that Camp Coleman played an integral role in your life as you were growing up and we need to assure that future generations will have the opportunity to share that same experience. You can do your part right now to help us move toward this goal without having to write a check to Camp. Please become a member of the Camp Coleman Legacy Society.
Coleman began a Legacy campaign 2 years ago as part of its effort to fund an endowment to sustain Camp for future Colemanites as their second Jewish home and community. If you were at Camp last summer you might have seen our Legacy Banner proudly hanging in the Chadar Ochel with the names of all our Legacy Society members. All of those Coleman Alums and other supporters have taken on the opportunity to help us carry on the Coleman magic for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We look forward to doubling those names this summer by adding yours to our Legacy. It would also be nice for URJ President Rick Jacobs, who is visiting Camp later this summer, to see how strong our Alums support the future of Camp Coleman.
Camp Coleman partners with JCamp 180, an organization completely funded by Harold Grinspoon, that supports Jewish camps. In the last 5 years Harold Grinspoon himself has contributed tens of millions of dollars to Jewish camping, including our own Camp Coleman. In the past 2 years we have received $20,000 in special grants due to the number of Legacy commitments we had received. We need 15 additional commitments in order to receive this year’s challenge grant.
If you click here you’ll find a letter of intent. There is no financial payment at this time. It is simply a promise that you will put Coleman into your estate plans as one of your beneficiaries, whether in the form of a percentage or a specific amount. We hope you will complete and return soon.
We look forward to working together with our alumni to assure that we can continue to provide the unique and amazing Camp Coleman experience for our children for many years to come. Please do your part to guarantee Coleman’s future by joining the rest of us and participating in the Camp Coleman Legacy Society.
