Life & Legacy Program: Assuring Jewish Tomorrows

In 2016, Judea Reform joined Life & Legacy, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

What is Grinspoon's Life & Legacy?

Life & Legacy is a multi- ear 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 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.


Through Life & Legacy, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation aims to motivate Jewish communities to become proactive in encouraging widespread legacy giving in order to sustain the future of their organizations.The program is founded on the principle that all of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, can make an enduring impact.

Community Involvement

A highlight of the program is the unrestricted incentive grant the Jewish Federation of Durham Chapel Hill will award all participating organizations based on meeting legacy commitment benchmarks. This community program includes not just Judea Reform Congregation, but also:

As of 2022, we are grateful to the Grinspoon Life & Legacy Program, which Judea Reform joined in 2016 with our Jewish community partners, to help build our Legacy Giving program. We now have a robust and growing legacy giving program that combines our early L'Dor V'dor initiative with  Grinspoon's Life & Legacy Program. All legacy giving at Judea Reform is now combined to form Judea Reform's L'Dor V'dor Legacy Gift Society.
