Foundation selected to lead Greater Hartford’s LIFE & LEGACY Initiative

The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford has been selected to join 69 other Jewish Community Foundations and Jewish Federations in the 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 a local Life and Legacy community-wide 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 curriculum initiative that provides coaching, training and incentive grants to ensure that legacy giving becomes further integrated in the philanthropic culture of the community.

“We are thrilled to be chosen by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to lead the Life & Legacy program in Greater Hartford,” says Jacob Schreiber, president and CEO of the Foundation. “This partnership will help us build a strong core of legacy commitments in Greater Hartford that will ensure a vibrant Jewish community for generations to come.”
