Stock, Donor-Advised Funds & more ways to give

Thank you for caring. Every gift to Camp Tevya changes a young person’s life. Our generous donors sustain camp’s future in this critical time, and also provide scholarships (on which 1 in 4 camp families depend), enhance programs, make major building improvements, strengthen counselor professional development, and so much more. We appreciate and thank each donor on the annual Cohen Camps Honor Roll.

Make your gift in the way that works best for you.

Ask your company to match your gift
Many companies support causes that are important to their employees–and sometimes even their retirees. Matching gift programs typically double the donation at the very least! We will gladly help in the process of any matching gift program your company offers. Check with your human resources or business office to find out your company’s policy, or let us know whom to contact.

 

Shop with Amazon Smile
Visit smile.amazon.com and choose “Eli and Bessie Cohen Camps”as your preferred charity.

(You may also see “Eli and Bessie Cohen Camps of Massachusetts, Inc.” as an option; this will benefit Camp Pembroke, a different Cohen Camp.)

After that, whenever you shop on Amazon using smile.amazon.com as your starting point, Amazon will donate to camp a portion of whatever you spend. No cost to you, but it adds up for campers!
