Sustaining Our Jewish Future
LIFE & LEGACY®: What Will Your Legacy Be?
As my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me. – Talmud
The greater Ann Arbor Jewish community is proud to participate as a LIFE & LEGACY partner of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. This forward-thinking program engages local Jewish organizations and congregations in a collective and collaborative endeavor to ensure the strength of our community now and for the future.
Many of you are loyal, long-time supporters of Jewish charitable organizations in Washtenaw County. Have you established a legacy with those organizations by including them in your estate plan? LIFE & LEGACY allows you to realize your philanthropic dreams by creating permanent legacy gifts to support the Jewish organizations and congregations about which you care, for years to come.
All of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, have the ability to help sustain a vibrant Jewish community now and in the future.
LIFE & LEGACY is not just for the wealthy – it is the means by which ordinary people can make an extraordinary impact.
