Live On | LIFE & LEGACY™ and Sinai Circle
 

Temple Sinai is excited to announce that we have been selected to participate with 27 other local Jewish organizations in Live On | LIFE & LEGACY, a program that supports Jewish organizations in securing legacy gifts.  

Live On: Build Your Jewish Legacy, an initiative of Rose Community Foundation, and LIFE & LEGACY™, a partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, have joined together to strengthen the Greater Denver/Boulder Jewish communities by encouraging endowment building and legacy giving. Live On | LIFE & LEGACY™ provides training, support, and incentive grants to the participating organizations to encourage legacy gift solicitations and donor commitments that will benefit Jewish organizations for future generations.

What is Live On | LIFE & LEGACY?
Live On: Build Your Jewish Legacy, an initiative of Rose Community Foundation, and LIFE & LEGACY, a partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, have joined together to strengthen the Greater Denver/Boulder Jewish communities by encouraging endowment building and legacy giving.

 

Rose Community Foundation is committed to helping Jewish nonprofits secure their future through endowment building and legacy giving. Launched in 2005, Live On: Build Your Jewish Legacy has provided incentive grants, marketing resources and training to 37 organizations to help nonprofits ask for bequests and legacy gifts. The initiative has resulted in the training of more than 200 volunteer and staff leaders who have conducted more than 3,000 solicitations, resulting in 973 secured legacy gifts valued at approximately $56.7 million. Participating organizations have already benefited from more than $8 million of matured legacy gifts. Live On followed the success of The Endowment Challenge (1999-2002), an effort that provided training, coaching and challenge grants to 19 Jewish organizations to help them establish endowment funds which have since dispersed $15.83 million in cumulative annual distributions.

 

 

In 2017, the Foundation made an additional investment in nonprofit sustainability through a partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to bring its tested national curriculum, LIFE & LEGACY, to the Greater Denver/Boulder Jewish communities. LIFE & LEGACY is in 51 other communities throughout North America and promotes after-lifetime giving to benefit Jewish organizations. This new partnership emphasizes stewardship and formalization of legacy gifts and promotes a collaborative solicitation approach that strengthens the community as a whole. Twenty-eight organizations are participating in this new phase of Live On | LIFE & LEGACY. Through individual and collective generosity donors are building endowments and a future for their cherished institutions. They are “living on” through their legacy giving.

 

Rose Community Foundation is committed to stewardship and dedicated to strengthening nonprofit organizations throughout the Greater metropolitan area through building and managing their endowment funds and less restrictive designated funds.

 

Types of Gifts
There are many different ways to leave your own legacy. Some can be completed without the help of an advisor, although you are always encouraged to consult a professional to insure that your charitable plans are consistent with your plans for other loved ones.

There are many ways to make a legacy gift, including: 

  • A simple charitable bequest
  • Life insurance policy
  • An IRA or Pension Plan
  • A charitable gift annuity
  • A charitalbe remainder trust

Everyone has a unique family and financial situation. Your legacy gift of any size can be designed to match your personal circumstances.
