Legacy Circle

The Camp Solomon Schechter 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. Launched in partnership with the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, our goal is to ensure a deep connection to Judaism from generation to generation, l’dor v’dor. Bequests and planned gifts will become part of the Camp Solomon Schechter Endowment Fund and/or the Stampfer Scholarship Endowment Fund.

The Benefits

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.

If you would like to include Schechter in your estate plans, please contact Leah Conley at
