Applications for Summer Camp Scholarships Now Accepted
The Jewish Community Foundation is pleased to announce limited, need-based scholarships for Jewish children from Maricopa County to attend Jewish summer camp in the United States. Scholarship requests should be “last resort” funds, supplementing financial aid provided by the camp, family, synagogue, and all other possible sources. Applicants must be in grades K-11 for the current school year. Priority is given for overnight camping.
Funding is made possible by a generous grant from the Molly Blank Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation and endowment funds established at the Jewish Community Foundation by Jack Bromfield and by the families of Labe Eric Targovnik and Kenneth Maltenfort for the dual purposes of reducing the financial burden of camping on Jewish families, and encouraging Jewish families to enroll their children in an immersive Jewish camping experience. “Thanks to the generosity of these donors, scholarships awarded in 2016 helped more than 80 local children attend Jewish camps,” said Richard Kasper, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Community Foundation.
Completed scholarship applications must be received by the Jewish Community Foundation no later than noon on March 6, 2017.
