LIFE & LEGACY

On May 10th our LIFE & LEGACY Team, along with the 11 other local participating organizations celebrated the successful end of Year #1.  We received a $10,000 incentive grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation for reaching (and surpassing) the goal of securing 25 legacy gift pledges.

Or Tzion congregations who have made their legacy commitments become members of our L’dor Vador Society.  We are so pleased that to date 37 individuals and families have joined the L’dor Vador Society.

The success of our first year was made possible by our fantastic L&L Team – Co- chairs, Tricia Beran, Steve Draizin and Naomi Goodell; Fredi Brown, Rachel Feitlinger, Kimberly Kur and Matt Benjamin.  Michelle Mandell is now the L&L Team Staff laision.

Or Tzion is one of 12 local Jewish community organizations selected to participate in this national program, established by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation in coordination with the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Phoenix. LIFE & LEGACY is now working with over 30 communities across the country representing over 400 organizations.

The purpose of the LIFE & LEGACY program is clear – TO ENSURE JEWISH TOMORROWS FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND ESPECIALLY FOR OUR CONGREGATION, OR TZION! 

Everyone, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation has the ability to leave a legacy – THERE IS NO MINIMUM AMOUNT REQUIRED!

The process is simple – it begins with a conversation.  The L&L Team is trying to reach out personally to as many as possible, but please, don’t wait – reach out to us.  Call or email a team member or the synagogue and we will contact you as soon as possible.

We are officially into Year #2 and have already received 12 or the 25 legacy gift pledges needed to obtain a second $10,000 incentive grant.  Although reaching and surpassing our goal is important, we will be placing emphasis and working this year- and in years to come – to further create a culture of legacy and endowment giving in our congregation.

The immediate future for Or Tzion is so bright and exciting – L’dor Vador Society members have made clear their commitment to a flourishing and secure congregational future for future generations for years to come.

Please act upon your commitment and join in making Congregation Or Tzion a part your legacy!

Co-chairs: Tricia Beran, Steve Draizin, Naomi Goodell
