Life & Legacy Giving


TanenbaumCHAT is proud to participate in the LIFE & LEGACY™ endowment program, an initiative of the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. The objective is to help build endowments through legacy giving so that Jewish day school education remains affordable for future generations. This program has an impressive track record of proven success in the U.S. and 14 Jewish day schools in Ontario have now joined this important project. 

Endowments create perpetual income streams that are vital to reducing some of the year-to-year fundraising pressures that all Jewish day schools face. They also are a key element in maintaining tuition at an accessible level. Giving an endowment, even a small gift in the future, will benefit future generations in perpetuity. 

Please invest in our future so that TanenbaumCHAT has the necessary resources to ensure future generations of Jewish children have access to a world-class Jewish education.

“The Life & Legacy endowment fund is our way of paying forward. I believe that if everyone makes a commitment of any size to the Life & Legacy fund, our children and grandchildren will not have as significant a financial burden to consider when deciding to send their children to Jewish day schools. This will translate to more children with strong Jewish identities and a love for the State of Israel.”
