Life & Legacy
"As my ancestors planted for me, so do I plant for those who will come after me."
Building a strong and sustainable future for Jewish communities in Maine and around the world
The JCA is partnering with local synagogues to bring legacy giving to our community!
The JCA was selected by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) to assist in developing a culture of legacy giving in Southern Maine. Over the last nine years, HGF has allocated $30 million for training and support, resulting in over $1 billion in legacy support in sixty-three communities in North America.
