Legacy Endowments

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 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.

In November of 2017 Jewish Nevada and The Harold Grinspoon Foundation launched this outstanding program in Nevada.  With 7 local organizations and agencies as participating partners, the Nevada LIFE & LEGACY™ Program will secure legacy commitments to support local organizations, and ensure a thriving future for our Jewish community.



We are grateful that over 17,000 North American donors have committed over $1 billion in legacy gifts through the collaboration with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation's LIFE & LEGACY Initiative. 


Locally, 200 donors have already committed a legacy gift to Jewish Nevada and other organizations that have shaped their lives. This is just the beginning of a community-wide effort to ensure a vibrant Jewish future in Nevada.

Legacy Gift


A legacy commitment is a way for each of us to help shape today, the community we hope to see tomorrow. It is a gift that keeps on giving, one whose impact will ensure a thriving, vibrant Jewish life in Las Vegas and beyond. We aim to create a community our grandparents would be proud of, and our grandchildren will thank us for. We hope you will join us in leaving a lasting legacy here in Nevada.
