And that's a wrap!
The LIFE & LEGACY/Each One Reach One initiative took place in the second half of 2021, concluding December 31st, thanks to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF). Each One Reach One helped remind our community about the importance of legacy giving to benefit future generations.
With the goal of increasing legacy gift commitments by donors to support South Jersey's vital Jewish organizations, this campaign served as a brief follow-up effort to HGF's LIFE & LEGACY, which the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. coordinated locally from 2014-2019.
For LIFE & LEGACY/Each One Reach One, HGF provided a total of $18,000 in incentive grants to our community, training opportunities for legacy teams, and other helpful resources. Also, as a national initiative, HGF created a donor mosaic, where legacy donors from around the country could submit selfies and messages about their legacy gifts. From the JCF, legacy teams earned an additional $1,250 in incentive grants, and received marketing outreach and program support throughout.
Mazel tov to the following organizations that earned incentives from HGF and/or the JCF:
Despite the difficulties posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has caused many organizations to be pulled in myriad directions and created obstacles for legacy team members to meet in-person with donors, these five organizations committed themselves to our Jewish future. And for that, we congratulate and thank them.
Thank you also to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation for implementing Each One Reach One, and we look forward to continuing to build on this momentum for legacy outreach in the Southern New Jersey Jewish community in coming months.
