What is LIFE & LEGACY®, and how is this initiative benefiting the Southern New Jersey Jewish community?

 

In 2013, the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. was selected to participate in the LIFE & LEGACY program, funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF). Being selected for this program is a great honor for the JCF and a momentous occasion for the long-term benefit of the Southern New Jersey Jewish community.

 

Only a small handful of communities throughout North America are accepted to participate each year, and the communities that have been involved thus far have had overwhelming success since the launch of LIFE & LEGACY, collectively securing over one billion dollars in after lifetime giving.

 

Performance Update

 

As of March 1, 2021, over 600 legacy donors have made a total of nearly 900 commitments to benefit the local participating organizations.

 

Based on an estimate of $25,000 per commitment, this equals over $22.275 million in expected future assets in endowment funds to benefit the Southern New Jersey Jewish community! This number of commitments is among the highest out of the 50+ participating LIFE & LEGACY communities and Hillels from across the country!

 

Congratulations and thank you to all who have participated thus far. 

 

How you can get involved:
 

If you would like to support any of the participating organizations by establishing a legacy gift, we invite you to contact your preferred organization directly, or contact Seth Mirowitz at the JCF at 856-673-2521.

 

The next step is to review and sign our Letter of Intent form and submit it to the JCF or a selected organization, and ultimately we can work with you to formalize your legacy gift. 

If you have formalized your gift, please download our Legacy Gift Confirmation form and submit it and your selected organization(s) will know that your gift is in place.

 

It's easy to do and anybody can participate, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation.

 

Thank you.
