Corey Cutler Joins Foundation for Jewish Camp as Director of Development

The Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) is pleased to welcome Corey Cutler as Director of Development. For the past 13 years, Corey served as Director of Development at URJ Eisner and Crane Lake Camps . Corey is a lifelong camp community leader- attending URJ Camp Eisner as a camper, counselor and board member.

Cutler shares his vision: “Jewish overnight camp has been a centerpiece of the Jewish-American experience for over 100 years spanning all denominations. It has been, and remains, a major force in shaping our Jewish future and should be celebrated both as a means of engaging young people directly as well as a channel that consistently reaches young families.  I am extremely excited to translate my passion for the Foundation for Jewish Camp into resources that advance the field, ensuring strong Jewish future.”

Marina Lewin, Chief Operating Officer at FJC adds:  “We are thrilled to welcome Corey to our team.  At FJC we pride ourselves on growth, adaptation and innovation- in the field and on our team.  Corey comes to us with great experience and fresh ideas for expanding and strengthening our work and we look forward to partnering with him”.

A resident of West Orange, NJ, Cutler holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the State University of New York at Albany. In 2013, Corey received the “Development Professional Award” by JCamp180, a Harold Grinspoon Foundation program, recognizing his accomplishments in successful fundraising. Prior to his Jewish Communal career, Cutler spent 15 years in public and investor relations in agency life.

Founded in 1998, Foundation for Jewish Camp is a catalyst for change throughout the field of Jewish Camp, training and inspiring camp leaders, expanding access to Jewish summers—and increasing demand. Foundation for Jewish Camp enhances the Jewish impact of those summers and develops programs to strengthen camps across the Jewish spectrum in North America — including our One Happy Camper® program, which has enabled tens of thousands of young people to experience Jewish summers. Foundation for Jewish Camp elevates the field of Jewish camp on the cultural and philanthropic agenda.
