Pembroke Chai Match Challenge

Help Pembroke reach the Chai Match goal!Help shape Pembroke’s future.
We’re over halfway there!

JCamp180, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, selected Camp Pembroke as one of just 18 camps for a special, competitive opportunity:

Chai Match,
a challenge to raise $108,000.

The goal: to enhance the long-term effectiveness of Camp Pembroke, based on its successful track record for engaging girls and young women in meaningful Jewish cultural and educational experiences.

The Pembroke Chai Match Challenge comes at the perfect time: Camp Pembroke has just completed its 80th Season and is embarking on a five-year plan of strategic action for an even greater impact.

The Cohen Camps’ co-ed Camp Tevya went first, taking on Chai Match last year: parents, alumni and friends exceeded the goal and beat the deadlines. In the spirit of a little healthy sibling rivalry, Pembroke puts forth this challenge: let’s show JCamp180 what Pembroke Sisterhood can do!

To launch the Chai Match, JCamp 180 challenged Pembroke to secure two gifts of $9,000 apiece. JCamp180 pledged to match those gifts for a total pool of $36,000 to be used in a Phase 2. Two anonymous Pembroke donors have met that challenge! Thank you so much for this inspiring leadership!

NOW: Phase 2

To unlock those challenge funds, Pembroke alumnae and friends must contribute or pledge $108,000 by November 18, 2015. The $36,000 challenge fund will disburse $1 for every $3 raised, making each $1,800 minimum gift/pledge worth $2,400 to Camp Pembroke.We are grateful to the many people and families who have already contributed to Phase 2!
