JewishColumbus is delighted to host the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s (HGF) LIFE & LEGACY® initiative, creating a vibrant Jewish tomorrow for our entire Columbus Jewish community for generations to come.

Thanks to our Columbus Jewish Community for securing a vibrant and beautiful Jewish tomorrow through the LIFE & LEGACY program! Click here for a full list of our community participants, as of the close of Year 1, Feb. 28, 2021.

What is LIFE & LEGACY?

LIFE & LEGACY is a four-year legacy giving program to secure the financial future and success of local Jewish organizations.

Why participate in LIFE & LEGACY?

Every member of the Jewish community has been touched by one or more of our partner organizations (listed below). Now is your chance to ensure these institutions can thrive in perpetuity. You can assure continuity of services and programs in Columbus by making a legacy gift in your will or estate plan. Within this special partnership, you can then choose one or more of these partner organizations to benefit from your gift. It’s simple and yet very powerful.

We believe a strong Jewish community means a strong Columbus community. The endowments you create will ensure the long-term sustainability of our values and our dreams for all future generations.
