We are proud to participate in a national giving program that works with Jewish organizations to plan after-lifetime endowments so that donors can help support the causes they care about for generations to come. To date, LIFE & LEGACY® has secured more than 60,000 commitments with an estimated value of over 1.2 billion dollars for communities across North America.


LIFE & LEGACY® is a partnership between United Jewish Federation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) that funds and promotes a community-wide legacy giving program, creating a shared goal for the organizations to work toward. Federation administers and funds the program on behalf of the Stamford, New Canaan, and Darien Jewish community. The four-year program provides coaching, training, and incentive grants to local organizations to ensure that it is integrated into the philanthropic culture of our community.
