Gilboa Needs Builders Now More than Ever
After coming to the heartbreaking decision that it will not be possible to open camp this summer, Gilboa is facing serious challenges. We've spent countless hours over the past months planning new activities, strategically shifting resources, and applying for grants and loans so we can stay afloat financially.
Now we turn to you! Please be our partner in the work to ensure Gilboa’s future.
Gilboa is facing serious challenges. Summer tuition is our main source of income and not holding camp this summer has left us with a large revenue gap.
It costs over $450,000 annually to operate Gilboa, whether or not we run camp. We have been strategically cutting expenses and seeking funding opportunities from foundations and government sources. We have already secured additional funds, but there is still a gap.
We need you, our alumni, friends, and supporters, to raise $66,000. Gilboa's Board and other foundations will match your donations dollar to dollar, for a total of $132,000.
Over the past months, even as the world turned upside down, Gilboa has remained steadfast. We’ve turned our attention to supporting our families and strengthening our community. With your help, we can continue to do this work.
Your gift not only ensures our ability to make it through this time and be ready to open camp, but supports the many ways we are remaining connected when we are physically distanced.
