Partner in Preserving Our Jewish Community

Welcome to the Create a Jewish Legacy partnership page. Here our partner organizations will find all of the resources they need for promoting the program.

Create a Jewish Legacy, a program of the Jacobson Jewish Community Foundation at 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 4-year partnership assists communities in promoting after-lifetime giving to benefit local Jewish organizations.

Through training, support and monetary incentives, LIFE & LEGACY motivates Jewish organizations to integrate legacy giving into their philanthropic culture in order to sustain our Jewish community for generations to come. Local organizations went through an application process; 11 will be taking part in the LIFE & LEGACY initiative and will be eligible for consulting and to receive incentives, while all 15 CJL organizations will benefit from the educational programming.

Together Create a Jewish Legacy and LIFE & LEGACY will:

  • Cultivate a culture of legacy giving
  • Foster camaraderie and respect among Jewish organizations
  • Give generous and forward- thinking members of the Jewish community an opportunity to express their passion, purpose and commitment to the future of the community’s most valued Jewish organizations
