What is LIFE & LEGACY?

LIFE & LEGACY promotes after-lifetime giving in order to sustain valued organizations and vibrant Jewish communities.

LIFE & LEGACY is a four-year 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 build endowments that will sustain valued organizations and vibrant Jewish communities for the next generation and beyond.


Through training, support, and monetary incentives, LIFE & LEGACY motivates Jewish organizations to secure legacy gifts, steward donors, and integrate legacy giving into the philanthropic culture of the Jewish community.

"LIFE & LEGACY is an amazing tool for our community organizations to use to promote legacy giving and endowments.  It is unlike anything we have ever used in the past, and it is bringing real, meaningful results to our community. We are so grateful to be part of this nationwide program."
 – Judi CoRsaro, Chief Executive Officer, The Jewish Federation of Charleston, SC

“LIFE & LEGACY has professionalized us and given us a real sense of purpose and know-how in securing our future.  It’s really changed us as an organization in profound ways that can’t be overstated.”
- Rabbi Menasche East, Freedom Jewish Center, Randolf, NJ
