The corona virus is affecting the Leadership Camp's planning modes for 2020, who are looking at alternative digital options should the respective governors continue the shelter in place directives. The Leadership Academy grants by the Foundation were intended to support in-person activities so the Foundation has reached out to the Camps to determine how the Foundation might support the efficient and timely digital camp development.
In the event in-person camps are not held, the Foundation will not fund this year's grants. Instead, it will consider funding a reasonable amount of the digital development costs. This concept is under consideration by both the Trustees and the Camps. A joint conference call has been arranged for Camp leaders to discuss the approaches. The Foundation's role is simply to coordinate the Camp's effort with this call and to identify what funding might be appropriate.
