We are grateful for our partners and look forward to continuing to work collaboratively to ensure Tomorrow, Today.


The Tidewater Jewish Foundation is currently in its second year of 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.


LIFE & LEGACY provides donors the opportunity to make a lasting impact in their community for future generations. Beyond philanthropy, this program fosters camaraderie and the chance to strengthen the Jewish community overall.




"I found a fruitful world because my ancestors planted it for me. Likewise, I am planting for my children."
