LIFE & LEGACY® at The Barshop Jewish Community Center  

LIFE & LEGACY is a 4-year partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) that assists communities across North America, through partnerships with Jewish Federations and Foundations, to promote after-lifetime giving to benefit Jewish entities. LIFE & LEGACY motivates Jewish organizations to secure legacy gifts, steward donors and integrate legacy giving into the philanthropic culture of the Jewish community.

In San Antonio, eleven Jewish organizations have signed on to this initiative to collectively work together in securing legacy gifts which will support specific needs in the Jewish community for future generations with The Jewish Federation of San Antonio as the lead partner.
