The Foundation is proud to be spearheading a regional legacy giving program with 14 Jewish organizations that’s part of Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s (HGF) LIFE & LEGACY® program. A nationwide Jewish legacy giving initiative, LIFE & LEGACY has secured more than 28,000 after-lifetime commitments with an estimated value of over a billion dollars for Jewish organizations across North America.

In partnership with HGF and local Jewish organizations, the Foundation will lead Greater Hartford’s LIFE & LEGACY initiative to promote after-lifetime giving to benefit Jewish day schools, synagogues, social service organizations and other Jewish entities. Organizations will participate in a four-year initiative that provides coaching, training and incentive grants to ensure that legacy giving becomes further integrated in the philanthropic culture of the community.

“The pandemic has shown that organizations with endowments are faring better than those without them,” says Jacob Schreiber, president and CEO of The Foundation. “It’s inspiring to see so many Jewish organizations having the foresight to work on securing their – and our community’s collective – future, even as they continue raising annual dollars to maintain their current programs and services.”
