LIFE & LEGACY® program

Jewish Family Service is a participating agency in the LIFE & LEGACY® program, an initiative of JewishColumbus in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. They have joined together to strengthen the central Ohio Jewish community by encouraging endowment building and legacy giving. Through this program, JFS is eligible for grant funds when new donors join the legacy society and/or existing members provide additional details about their planned gift. 

Community Members Share Why They Made A Legacy Commitment to Jewish Family Services 

We want to ensure that Jewish Family Services will be able to continue its important work well into the future by providing a strong foundation today. This essential work includes assisting Holocaust survivors in living a life of dignity, aiding Jewish families in crisis, providing mental health counseling and helping people find and retain good jobs. We hope that your family will join our family by including JFS in your Life & Legacy gift!
