LIFE & LEGACY: What Will Your Legacy Be?


"As my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me." - Talmud

The Indianapolis Jewish community has been selected as a LIFE & LEGACY partner of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. This forward-thinking program seeks to engage local Jewish organizations in a collaborative endeavor that will ensure the strength of our community now and for the future.


Imagine if you could provide a gift to the Jewish community that would last forever. LIFE & LEGACY is an endowment program designed to help you create permanent legacy gifts, demonstrating your belief in the continuity of Jewish life for generations to come. In partnership with Jewish organizations and synagogues, this program helps individuals and families create ongoing support for the Jewish causes they care about. All of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, have the ability to help sustain a vibrant Jewish community now and in the future.
