Life and Legacy

Hillel Academy is honored to be a participating agency in the Life and Legacy initiative, which is being led by the Tampa Orlando Pinellas Jewish Foundation and funded nationally by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Life and Legacy is a two-year program that prioritizes primarily restricted (after-lifetime) giving for the benefit of local Jewish agencies.

As one of the participants, Hillel Academy has committed to securing 18 after-lifetime giving letters of intent in each of the next two years. If we meet our goal, we will be awarded an additional $12,000 grant from the program.

So far, Hillel Academy has secured five letters of intent totaling more than $575,000 in bequest gifts. Our graduates, parents, and grandparents have shown great enthusiasm for the program, as it allows them to commit to supporting Hillel Academy and other Jewish organizations without making a monetary contribution today.

For more information on how you can commit a bequest to Hillel Academy through the Life and Legacy program, please contact Our Advancement Director, Keri Baker advancement@hillelacademytampa.com or 813-963-2242. She would welcome an opportunity to discuss giving and bequeathing options with you.
