is a program dedicated to ensuring the future of our local Jewish organizations.

It reaffirms the importance of legacy giving at a time when we have been so reminded that you never know what the future will hold. Legacy commitments ensure that organizations that are providing impactful programs and services during both calm and turbulent times have the necessary resources to adapt.


A legacy building program benefiting the entire Jewish community.

LIFE & LEGACY is a capacity building partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation that provides training, support and monetary incentives to move organizations to secure meaningful after-lifetime legacy gifts. This program creates a strong partnership between the Atlanta Jewish Foundation and our local Jewish community agencies, synagogues and day schools.

Through LIFE & LEGACY, participating organizations embark on a legacy building program benefiting the entire Jewish community. In the first two years of this four-year program, more than 270 local donors have made legacy commitments that will support our Atlanta Jewish community with more than $17.7 million in future gifts. Worldwide, the LIFE & LEGACY program has motivated more than 17,000 donors in 63 communities across North America to commit more than a billion dollars in current and after-lifetime assets to the Jewish organizations which shaped their lives.

Participating organizations:

Alfred & Adele Davis Academy, Atlanta Jewish Academy, Congregation Bet Haverim, Congregation B’nai Torah, Congregation Shearith Israel, Jewish Family & Career Services, Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, Jewish HomeLife, Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta, Temple Emanu-El, The Epstein School and Torah Day School of Atlanta.

By signing a letter of intent now you can indicate the institutions that you want to be a part of your Jewish legacy, and we will help you to formalize your commitments. To learn more about how you can be part of securing Atlanta’s Jewish future, contact Rachel Rosner.
