A joint application between Calgary Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary resulted in our selection as one of only five new communities, and the first and only Canadian community, to join 52 others currently participating in the LIFE & LEGACY program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation . As of June 30, 2018 this program has helped communities secure more than 20,500 after-lifetime commitments with an estimated value of more than three quarters of a billion dollars. More information will follow in the coming months. If you have immediate questions, please email Diana Kalef or call 403-444-3154.
