Life & Legacy

How Will You Assure Jewish Tomorrows?
By leaving a legacy today!


What is Life and Legacy?
Life and Legacy is a collaborative program between the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF), UJF of Stamford, New Canaan and Darien (UJF) and Schoke Jewish Family Service (SJFS) that helps individuals and families create legacy gifts for the Jewish causes they care about.

Why Leave a Legacy Gift?
A legacy lasts forever! Creating your Jewish legacy will help SJFS become sustainable long after you are gone. Chances are you are already supporting Jewish charitable organizations in Fairfield County. While these current gifts are essential to meet the ongoing needs of SJFS so we can continue to meet the needs of the community, by leaving a Legacy Gift you can assure the critical SJFS services that mean so much to you today will exist for future generations.

How do I Participate?
Each of us regardless of age, wealth or family situation has the ability to leave a legacy. Your legacy gift can be totally customized and structured to fit your lifestyle, financial interests or specific SJFS area of interest. Click here to learn about the many giving options.

Ensuring Schoke JFS is here to meet the needs of tomorrow with your legacy gift.
