Leave a Legacy

By leaving a legacy, you will help to ensure that the traditions and institutions important to you remain vibrant for future generations.




The Tidewater Jewish Foundation recently completed its second year in the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s LIFE & LEGACY program as part of the 5th cohort to participate in this program, which now includes a total of 52 different Jewish communities.


LIFE & LEGACY is a 4-year program that assists communities, through partnerships with Jewish Federations and Foundations, to promote after-lifetime giving to benefit local Jewish day schools, synagogues, social service organizations, and other Jewish entities. Click here to learn more.


LOJE - Lion of Judah Endowment


Lion of Judah is a campaign division for women who give a gift of $5,000 or more to the Annual Campaign.


Many Lion of Judah donors have now endowed their gifts to ensure that their Lion of Judah gifts will be made every year in perpetuity. LOJE (Lion of Judah Endowment) donors wear the Or L'Atid (light unto the future) flame on their pins as a symbol of this lasting commitment to the Jewish community. A LOJE is a powerful statement of a donor's commitment to tzedakah, providing a legacy for family and community. Click here to learn more!!
