Foundation for Jewish Camp and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation
Grants to USA Jewish nonprofit day and overnight camps to improve inclusion and accessibility for staff and campers with disabilities. Funding is intended for capital projects, research and evaluation, and professional development. For the purposes of this grant, disabilities include autism spectrum disorder, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and physical and sensory disabilities.
The Yashar Initiative, generously funded by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, seeks to improve accessibility and inclusion for campers and staff with disabilities at Jewish day and overnight camps. This initiative strives to advance the field through funding capital projects, staff training, research and evaluation. Like the root of the word Yashar, this initiative will build inclusive camps with integrity. It is our aspiration that the field of Jewish camp mirrors our Jewish community, and it is our mandate to level the field, making it accessible to all.
The purpose of Yashar is to help participating camps to strategically upgrade facilities in order to expand capacity for campers and staff with disabilities. FJC invites you and your camp to apply; please make sure the project meets all the program specifications.
For the purposes of Yashar and this grant application, disabilities include autism spectrum disorder, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and physical and sensory disabilities. Examples include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger's syndrome, blindness, down syndrome, hearing impairments, seizures, and other physical disabilities. Include campers with ADHD only if they require extra staff support or accommodations to be successful at camp.
