Each One Reach One
Broward County LIFE & LEGACY Imitative Part of North American Giving Initiative to Double the Number of Legacy Donors
Through a new LIFE & LEGACY® campaign, called Each One Reach One, the Jewish Federation/Foundation of Broward County is partnering with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) to increase the number of donors participating in our community-wide endowment building legacy giving initiative.
This new effort encourages committed legacy donors to share their stories and motivations for leaving a legacy with family and friends, helping others understand their passion for the Jewish future and their communities. By doing so, we are hopeful family and friends will be inspired to leave a legacy too.
“Legacy giving allows everyone to be a philanthropist, to acknowledge the impact local organizations and programs have had on their life and make it possible for future generations to have a similar experience. We are so thankful that to date 18,000 donors across North America have stepped up and made a legacy commitment to one or more valued organizations. Imagine if each of you reached out to one other person, shared why you left a legacy and encouraged your friend or family member to join you. We would double our numbers and the Jewish future would be twice as bright.” said Arlene D. Schiff, National Director of the LIFE & LEGACY program.
The Each One Reach One campaign was launched at LIFE & LEGACY’s Virtual Legacy Donor Appreciation Event on May 25 where donors from across North America shared their stories. During the event, Winnie Sandler Grinspoon, President of HGF and Harold Grinspoon, Founder, encouraged us all to imagine what the Jewish future would look like if 18,000 legacy donors became 36,000 or 360,000 or 3.6 million.

To encourage donors, organizations, and our community to participate, HGF is offering $300,000 in national incentives
LIFE & LEGACY is an initiative of HGF which is investing $30 million dollars over a ten-year period to preserve vibrant Jewish life for future generations by ensuring the long-term financial health of Jewish community organizations in cities across North America, including COMMUNITY/CITY.
“Providing Jewish communities with proven tools and training to help them secure their long-term financial goals is absolutely vital. Through the LIFE & LEGACY program, I’m hopeful that we will be able to help sustain vibrant communities that allow future generations to enjoy our rich Jewish culture and heritage,” said Harold Grinspoon, the founder of HGF.
