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.

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.

  • Jonathan & Rachel Gurwitz

    “San Antonio will add 1 million new residents over the next two decades, many of them will be Jews. We want to ensure there is a vibrant Jewish community that embraces them as it has us, one that enriches the lives of our children and grandchildren, and those of the people who will move here."

  • Leslie Hyman

    "...long after I am gone, other people will move to San Antonio and my support now will allow those people to learn and worship and find a home in our Jewish community."

  • Danna & Jim Halff

    "By taking small steps to secure a legacy gift that won’t affect our bank account today, we still have funds to support the things we think are important now. And by making a promise to the future, I find I am more involved and focused on the present."
