What Will Your Legacy Be?

If you have ever thought about leaving a lasting Jewish legacy, there could not be a better time than now or a better place than South Palm Beach County. Create a Jewish Legacy (CJL), a community-wide initiative of the Jacobson Jewish Community Foundation (JJCF) of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, is proud to partner with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s LIFE & LEGACY program, a national force in promoting legacy giving.

This four-year partnership assists communities in promoting after-lifetime giving to benefit local Jewish organizations. Through training, support and monetary incentives, the initiative motivates Jewish organizations to secure legacy gifts, steward donors and integrate legacy giving into the philanthropic culture.

Through Create a Jewish Legacy you have all the resources and expertise to ensure that the community institutions and programs you feel most passionate about will continue to prosper for generations to come through a planned gift or endowment. By making a legacy commitment you can:

  • Convey your commitment to being Jewish
  • Express values instilled in you by your parents and grandparents
  • Perpetuate the Jewish traditions you cherish
  • Preserve the programs and organizations that support Jewish life in South Palm Beach County

And thanks to our partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s LIFE & LEGACY program, if you make your commitment to a legacy gift now, the organizations you love may also be eligible for cash incentives! All it takes is a conversation about your passions – and a plan of action to make a legacy gift that’s most meaningful to you.
