Thank you for considering a gift to Herzl Camp. Your support is needed, now more than ever.
To protect the health and safety of our campers, staff, and community from the coronavirus, Herzl Camp will close for 2020. Though we are confident this is the right path, it is still painful to realize that the buses will not roll in, campers’ voices will not fill the Chadar, and the Mercaz will welcome Shabbat, empty and silent.
Looking ahead, Herzl Camp is in uncharted waters. As an independent nonprofit, almost 90% of our revenue comes from camp tuition and donations tied directly to serving campers at camp (like scholarship). A full year without income creates a significant operating loss. To get to the first day of camp in 2021, we will need to make deep cuts and raise nearly $2 million.
Fortunately, our community is strong. You and other Herzl friends and alumni, have already contributed over $850,000 since Herzl shared this difficult decision.
Will you make a donation to carry camp through to 2021?
With full faith in the Herzl Family, we are restarting the camp countdown. Together, we will ensure that campers return to Herzl Camp next summer.
Im tirtzu ein zo agadah. If you will it, it is no dream.
NOTE: Herzl Camp is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. In addition to the joy of seeing camp reopen in 2021, you’ll get a tax-deduction, too.
