Goals

LIFE & LEGACY’s goal is to integrate legacy giving into the culture of the North American Jewish community

LIFE & LEGACY’s four main goals are to:
  1. Impact Jewish communal philanthropic culture to make legacy giving the norm
  2. Encourage strong stewardship practices in our organizations and communities
  3. Develop camaraderie and respect among organizations while sharing the goal of legacy building
  4. Enable all donors to be philanthropists
 
“A successful legacy campaign asks all of us to talk about the community we want to see in the future – the community we want our great-grandchildren to inherit.  Our legacy program has also inspired our community’s leaders and donors to develop a sense of mutual responsibility for that future, where securing legacy commitments is not a zero-sum game, but a win for the whole community. And that is community building at its finest.”
  Shep Englander, Chief Executive Officer, Jewish Federation of Cincinnati
