Legacy Circle

The CSS Legacy Circle, Judaism and Joy through Future Generations, gratefully acknowledges supporters who have informed us of their intent to leave a legacy gift to Camp Solomon Schechter.  We launched the program in partnership with the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.  The goal is to ensure that the youth and young adults in our community have the opportunity to experience a deep connection to Judaism, l’dor v’dor, from generation to generation.  Bequests and planned gifts will become part of the Camp Solomon Schechter Endowment Fund and/or the Stampfer Scholarship Endowment Fund.

Ways to Commit

 Your legacy can be maintained through:

  • Your will or living will;
  • Naming Camp Solomon Schechter as your IRA or other retirement account beneficiary;
  • Creating a charitable remainder or lead trust;
  • Donating appreciated assets or making another lifetime gift;
  • Naming Camp Solomon Schechter as a life insurance beneficiary; or
  • Establishing a charitable gift annuity.

Please consult your personal financial advisor and/or attorney to determine the most appropriate vehicle.


With your permission, your commitment to the CSS Legacy Circle will be acknowledged through our Annual Report, on our website and other publications, mentioned on our Tree of Life Wall at camp, and you will be invited to attend exclusive events for the CSS Legacy Circle.  Additionally, a legacy donation of $50,000 or more may be acknowledged by creating a named fund within one of our endowment funds.

This list is in formation; if you have included Schechter in your estate plans, please let us know by filling out and submitting a Declaration of Intent.
