Innovation Fund for Jewish Impact


The Innovation Fund for Jewish Impact yields an important field resource through identifying, testing, and publicizing the strongest programs available for camps to implement during the summer. The Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) offers small grants of $5,000-$10,000 to selected Jewish content developers to test their program designs with campers and staff. The selection of programs is guided by a committee of camp educational directors, among others, and is geared toward programs that can make a lasting Jewish impact and might be adapted by multiple camps. Successful programs and exemplary resource providers – as gauged through formal reports evaluating their impact – are promoted on FJC’s online Knowledge Center. Listings include each program’s educational goals, the implementation experience of the piloting camps, the results, and detailed recommendations for adaptation.
