One thousand dollars is a chunk of change. A group of 29 teens at Capital Camps in Waynesboro, Pa., learned this summer how to spend that sum wisely and philanthropically.
The Jewish camp, which is based in Rockville, was one of 38 summer camps to receive funds from Jewish Teen Funders Network to create a philanthropic foundation and disburse $1,000. The Jewish Teen Funders Network is a project of the Jewish Funders Network, an organization of family foundations, public philanthropies and individual funders.
