Bequest Giving Summit Convenes Professionals from 36 Federation Communities

An annual summit on strengthening bequest giving convened professionals from 36 Federation communities last week. Held in collaboration with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, the meeting explored best practices from the successful Create a Jewish Legacy and Life & Legacy programs. Increases in planned giving have helped Federations’ endowments grow 15% every year for the past decade to $16 billion total.
