You are here

How do you express your commitment to your community? How do you support the Jewish organizations that are important to you? Omaha's Jewish community is fortunate to have many who donate their time and/or money to area Jewish organizations. However, what happens after the donors are gone? What can you do for future generations to ensure that they are well-served by the Jewish organizations you support?

You can leave a legacy.
On June 15th, 2017, the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation will host a celebration in the JCC Gallery to honor the members of our community who made commitments during the third year of Omaha’s LIFE & LEGACY™ Program. The theme this year will be Lighting the Torch of Philanthropy Together. Our keynote speaker will be Amy Hirshberg Lederman, nationally syndicated columnist, author and attorney. Arlene D. Schiff, the national LIFE&LEGACY director of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation will also be in attendance. Generous Omahans have promised over 579 legacy gifts to secure the future of Jewish tomorrows.

Life & Legacy Donor Testimonials from our year 2 LIFE&LEGACY event can be found on Jewish Federation of Omaha on Vimeo.

Through hard work and dedication, all nine of our community partners, the ADL/CRC, Chabad House, Institute for Holocaust Education, Nebraska Jewish Historical Society, Jewish Federation of Omaha and its agencies, Temple Israel Synagogue, Beth El Synagogue, Beth Israel Synagogue and Friedel Jewish Academy reached or exceeded their third year goals and received incentive grants from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. We are looking forward to a successful fourth and final year of the LIFE&LEGACY program.

We wish to thank all of our wonderful donors for helping to ensure the financial security of Jewish Omaha for generations to come; it will be their legacy.
