If not me, who? The Temple has been very important to the life of my family. It seems obvious to me to do what I am able and give back – beyond current giving, it is “easy” to commit to more significant and impactful giving through estate planning. This is how I pay back my parents and grandparents who did what they were able years ago. I am now modeling generosity to my kids as well!

Life & Legacy

What is LIFE & LEGACY?

LIFE & LEGACY is a partnership of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Jewish Community of Louisville, with the support of the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence, that promotes after-lifetime giving to benefit Jewish synagogues and organizations. Legacy giving – sometimes called planned giving – strengthens the community that The Temple serves and, in many instances, also provides you with tax advantages. It ensures that you will be remembered both by those who directly benefit from your generosity to The Temple as well as those who will be inspired by your example of planning for future donations.

It’s easy to name The Temple as a beneficiary:

  • Go online:

    Access your financial account online and add The Temple as a beneficiary. Please contact us for your Tax ID.

  • Contact your plan administrator:

    Request a beneficiary designation form. An attorney is not needed to make this type of gift.
