LIFE & LEGACY®  is a capacity building partnership program offered by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation that provides training, support, and monetary incentives to move organizations to secure meaningful after-lifetime legacy gifts. Building upon the strong partnership with the Jewish Federation of San Antonio and our local Jewish community agencies and synagogues, participating entities will embark on a legacy building program to ensure a vibrant Jewish legacy for San Antonio.

Planting the seeds today can make all the difference tomorrow...

LIFE & LEGACY® is focused on "Assuring Jewish Tomorrow." This ambition would not be possible without members of the San Antonio Jewish community who choose to give to Jewish agencies and synagogues. By giving, you are part of a movement that is working to secure a strong Jewish future for generations to come.
