Our Impact

Working with Jewish communities and valued Jewish organizations to build endowments that ensure long-term sustainability

By participating in LIFE & LEGACY, individuals, organizations and the community will
 
  • Plan and actively work for the future as you continue to meet today’s needs
  • Dedicate professional and volunteer resources to build endowments so organizations will be financially stable in the future
  • Work collaboratively with one another, sharing ideas and resources so all will thrive
  • Engage in meaningful legacy conversations with your most loyal donors, giving them the opportunity to tell their Jewish stories and reflect on the impact your organization has had on their lives
  • Secure legacy commitments from loyal donors
  • Learn to effectively recognize, appreciate and steward your donors so they stay engaged with your organization over the course of their life
  • Integrate legacy giving into the philanthropic culture of your organization
 
“The training and incentive program has inspired organizations like ours to think about and plan for our future survival, and has given us the reason and opportunity to meet with members of all ages to learn about their stories and share their feelings for our shul and Judaism’s future.  We have learned that there is a bright future for all of us and that by sharing ideas with other organizations we all learn from each other and everyone benefits.”
