Life and Legacy Planned Giving

Rabbi Geoffrey Huntting Endowment Fund

We are excited to announce that in the spring of 2017, Temple Sinai has joined forces with 11 area Jewish organizations in the Life and Legacy™ program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. This is a 4-year partnership program in conjunction with the Jewish Federation that provides training, support and incentives to promote after-lifetime giving. At Temple Sinai, we have dovetailed the Life and Legacy ™ program with our recently formed Rabbi Geoffrey Huntting Endowment Fund, consolidating our efforts to provide a secure Jewish home for generations to come.

As of year-end 2016, nationwide the Life and Legacy ™ program has touched 36 communities and over 391 organizations. Almost half a billion dollars of future gifts have been secured for the Jewish community. The Harold Grinspoon Foundation has committed $30 million dollars over 10 years to the success of this initiative.

We are thrilled that the Sarasota-Manatee community was selected to be a part of this opportunity and that Temple Sinai was accepted as a local partner. Longtime Temple Sinai member, Gisele Pintchuck is the liaison at Federation linking our community and the Foundation.

Be a part of securing the future of Temple Sinai by participating in our Life and Legacy ™ program. Our committee members are Mark Richmond, Daryl Worobow, Ken Kaufman and Laurie Lachowitzer. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at
