LIFE & LEGACY Initiative

The Jewish Community Foundation is excited to continue our 6-year partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to "Assure Jewish Tomorrows" in New Mexico.

Through this program, more than 340 donors have committed to make a legacy gift to one or more local Jewish organizations. Total estimated value of endowment gift commitments has reached $6.6 million with over $923,150 added to organization endowment funds to-date.

LIFE & LEGACY is an endowment program designed to help donors create permanent legacy gifts, demonstrating their belief in the continuity of Jewish life in New Mexico for generations to come. Working together with Jewish organizations and synagogues in Albuquerque, Los Alamos and Santa Fe, this program helps individuals and families create ongoing support for the Jewish causes they care about.
