A Legacy Is Forever: Create Yours Today


As a community, we all hope that those places that create Jewish life and meaning in our lives will remain vibrant and strong into the future. LIFE & LEGACY, an initiative of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, helps individuals and families create legacy gifts, providing a permanent source of support for the Jewish causes we care about. It is founded on the principle that all of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, can make an enduring impact. The United Jewish Federation of Utah, in partnership with Congregation Kol Ami, Jewish Family Service, and Temple Har Shalom, works to encourage legacy giving to ensure Jewish tomorrows in our community.

Create Your Legacy

In one way or another, your life is rooted in experiences connecting you to the Utah Jewish community. Chances are you already support Jewish charitable organizations here, but have you included them in your will or estate plan? By leaving a legacy, you can assure that the traditions and institutions that mean so much to you today will exist for future generations. You can assure the vibrant future of the Jewish community in Utah!

Creating a Jewish Legacy Enables you to:

Affirm your commitment to the Jewish Community

Express your desire for a vibrant Jewish Future

Perpetuate the traditions and programs you cherish

Be united with others with similar commitments and values

Do something for the future that you might not be able to do today

Be remembered forever in the Jewish Community



“As my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me.”
