Life & Legacy Program Generates More Than $10 Million in Future Value for the Jewish Community
In July 2018, the Jewish Federation announced it exceeded its goals for year two of the Life & Legacy program. Together with eight partner organizations, 178 Letters of Intent (LOIs) were brought in, 16 more than the set goal, each averaging $25,001. Combined with last year’s LOIs, the effort totals more than $10.4 million in future value for the Jewish community.
Reaching this milestone earned the Jewish Federation and its Life & Legacy partners financial incentives from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (the program’s creator) and our community qualified to continue the program for a third year.
In year one, this community’s goal of 180 LOIs was also exceeded by 22.
In August 2015, the Jewish Federation won a competitive grant to bring the LIFE & LEGACY program to the heart of NJ, committing resources to invest in a bright Jewish future and securing matching funds from the program’s creator, The Harold Grinspoon Foundation, to benefit a dozen different Jewish organizations.
The Jewish Federation has been working with donors for many decades to help them realize their philanthropic aims.
