The Jewish Community Foundation of the West is delighted to partner with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to promote and manage the LIFE & LEGACY Program in the Sacramento area.

LIFE & LEGACY is a proven program that brings training, resources, and accountability to our area to help participating organizations grow and maintain planned giving programs, with a focus on after-lifetime gifts. Ten Sacramento-area community organizations are participating in this program:

  • Congregation B’nai Israel
  • Congregation Bet Haverim
  • Congregation Beth Shalom
  • Hillel at Davis and Sacramento
  • Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region
  • Kenesset Israel Torah Center
  • Mosaic Law Congregation
  • North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation
  • Shalom School
  • Temple Or Rishon

Creating a Legacy Gift is a process that every person can undertake. Consider leaving a percentage of your estate to your favorite charities through a will or trust. Assign a charity as the beneficiary of a portion of your retirement fund or life insurance policy. There is no expectation of payment while you are living, and your heirs can benefit from the lesson of philanthropy just as much as from a cash inheritance.

Create Your Own Legacy
You can let your favorite charities know that you intend to leave them a gift by completing this Letter of Intent and returning it to the JCFW Offices. Or, if you prefer, you can contact your charities directly to discuss the ways you can be a part of building Legacy Giving.
