LIFE & LEGACY, a four-year national program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, will receive a four-year extension called LIFE & LEGACY PLUS, according to officials at the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, which partners with HGF.

“By working with the Grinspoon LIFE & LEGACY program to secure planned giving commitments, the Jewish Federation has helped our synagogues and Jewish agencies continue to meet needs, many of which we can’t even anticipate today, for future generations,” said Jeffrey Finkelstein, the Federation’s president and CEO, in a prepared statement.

Through LIFE & LEGACY, donors aim to provide support for the next generation of their Jewish communities and organizations through legacy gifts and endowments. The donations are made after the donor’s death, either through their will or insurance policy.

HGF is working to approve plans and release funding to make LIFE & LEGACY PLUS the next generation of the program. Over the four-year extension, HGF will make a 2-1 match for funds raised per community: up to $50,000 the first year, $45,000 the second, $40,000 the third and $35,000 the fourth. The matches will come from LIFE & LEGACY partner Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

LIFE & LEGACY currently operates in 73 communities across North America. There are 19 participating organizations in the Pittsburgh area. PJC
