In June 2016 the Jewish Community Foundation began a partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation as part of the LIFE & LEGACY® program. As of April 2022, our community has secured 491 legacy gifts representing a value of $33,330,009 million. Originally, the program was intended to last through 2021. Due to the success, it has been extended through 2027!
LIFE & LEGACY® is a partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation that assists communities across North America, through partnerships with Jewish Federations and Foundations, to promote after-lifetime giving to benefit local Jewish day schools, synagogues, social service organizations and other Jewish entities.

The LIFE & LEGACY® program provides an opportunity for people of all financial means to make their mark on the future of our Jewish community by leaving a legacy gift. Most gifts are acquired after your lifetime, so you have the money you need now, and your beloved organization can plan on your involvement into perpetuity.
