Life and Legacy


You can help ensure that Jewish communities, and the entire Jewish people, remain vibrant for decades and centuries, well beyond your lifetime so that we may continue to be a light unto the nations.


The Tampa JCC & Federation is honored to be a participating agency in the Life and Legacy initiative, which is being led by the Tampa Orlando Pinellas Jewish Foundation (TOP) 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, the Tampa JCC & Federation has committed to securing 18 after-lifetime giving letters of intent in each of the next two years.  So far, the Tampa JCC & Federation has secured twelve letters of intent totaling more than $450,000 in bequest gifts. Our community members have shown great enthusiasm for the program, as it allows them to commit to supporting the Tampa JCC & Federation and other Jewish organizations without making a monetary contribution today.


For more information on how you can commit a bequest to the Tampa JCC & Federation through the Life and Legacy program, please contact Alissa Fischel at 813-769-4726 or We would welcome an opportunity to discuss giving and bequeathing opportunities with you.
