The Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary is delighted to partner with Calgary Jewish Federation in delivering and implementing the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s LIFE & LEGACYTM program in Calgary. LIFE & LEGACY is a tested, proven and successful four-year program during which we will team up with local Jewish organizations to ensure their future financial success. The objective of the program is to secure legacy gifts in support of building and securing our local Jewish organizations. We are proud that Calgary is the first city in Canada selected to be part of LIFE & LEGACY.

What is LIFE & LEGACY?

LIFE & LEGACY is a four-year partnership program of the HGF that assists communities across North America, through partnerships with Jewish Federations and Foundations, to promote after-lifetime giving to benefit local Jewish day schools, synagogues, social service organizations and other Jewish entities. Through training, support and monetary incentives LIFE & LEGACY motivates Jewish organizations to secure legacy gifts, steward donors and integrate legacy giving into the philanthropic culture of the Jewish community.

Who are the local LIFE & LEGACY partners?

Ten local Jewish organizations have made a commitment to work together to support the future of the Calgary community. Talk to any of them to learn more about ways you can support these organizations and beyond.
