Assuring Jewish Tomorrows in the Lehigh Valley

 

Life & Legacy is designed so that every person can show their commitment to our local Jewish organizations. It creates the space and dialogue to be proud of the history, present, and future of our congregation. It helps ensure the future of Am Haskalah for generations to come.

 

WHAT IS LIFE & LEGACY?

Life & Legacy is a 4–year partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) 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. 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.

 

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THE LIFE & LEGACY PROGRAM?

The vision of the program is that generous and forward-thinking members of the community will have an opportunity to express their passion, purpose and commitment to the future of our most valued Jewish organizations.
