Support Ramah

Ways to Give

An endowment gift supports programs and services long into the future.

You choose what aspect of Camp you would like to endow, such as camperships, capital, programs, or a staff position, and you choose in whose name it will be remembered. Only the interest generated by the fund will be spent each year, and only for the purpose you specify. Start your own Endowment Fund with a minimum gift of $25,000. Or make a tribute gift in honor or in memory of someone, and put it toward an existing endowment fund.
