United Jewish Federation was selected by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation as one of only five new organizations to participate in a national Jewish legacy giving program that has secured an estimated value of over one billion dollars for communities across North America.  


LIFE & LEGACY® is a collaborative program that helps individuals and families create legacy gifts for Jewish causes they care about, providing a permanent source of support for our community. The program is founded on the principle that all of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, can make an enduring impact. Federation administers the program in partnership with 10 local synagogues and organizations in Jewish Stamford, New Canaan and Darien, which receive training and incentive grants from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
