#throwbackthursday: JTFN Camp Philanthropy Pilot Program Findings
As part of our ten-year anniversary celebration, we are participating in the popular social media trend “Throwback Thursday” by sharing a report from some of Rosov’s earliest work on our website and social media. In Rosov Consulting’s early days, sharing findings with the greater field was not a priority, so we are using this as a chance to “resurface” important research and analysis that we conducted that might not have received the audience it warranted.
This month for #throwbackthursday, we are sharing the 2012 report, “JTFN Camp Philanthropy Pilot Program Findings,” commissioned by the Jewish Teen Funders Network to learn more about the pilot year of a JTFN Camp Philanthropy program that empowered campers to award grants. Rosov Consulting was brought on board to evaluate the program’s implementation and the immediate post-program outcomes on participants, staff, and participating camps.
As camp seasons are beginning across the country, it is worth reflecting on these findings and the impact that strategic philanthropic involvement can have on youth, particularly within the framework of immersive Jewish summer camp.
