Legacy Giving - Sustain Our Future

Why leave a legacy gift to the Boulder JCC?
With a planned gift to the Boulder JCC, you…

  • Perpetuate the vitality and purpose of the JCC, its programs, and services
  • Continue your support of the values and causes that the JCC represents
  • Create a lasting tribute to honor family, friends, and loved ones
  • Leave the world a better place and make a difference 

Carob Legacy Circle and Life & Legacy
The Boulder JCC is thrilled to participate in the Life & Legacy program through the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and Rose Community Foundation, who partner with Jewish organizations across the U.S., including the Boulder JCC and many of our local synagogues, to promote after-lifetime giving. This four-year partnership program motivates Jewish organizations to integrate legacy giving into the philanthropic culture of the Jewish community. The name Carob Legacy Circle was chosen because of the intergenerational symbolism the carob tree has in Jewish culture. The carob tree does not fruit for seventy years, rendering it a beautiful metaphor for legacy giving and the lasting effects it can have in our community.

Your Legacy at the Boulder JCC

Why we give...

We were both raised with the understanding that part of being Jewish is being involved. Whether that is giving time, talent, or treasure, participating in Jewish communal life was always a priority for both of us.

When we moved to Boulder and had our son, we got involved with the JCC in hopes that Ezra would be able to attend camp and other programming in what was then the dream of a new building. Now that the building is complete, our whole family has enjoyed a variety of programming within its beautiful walls. We have laughed, learned, and made many friends within a space where all are welcome.

Jewish continuity is extremely important to us. We participated in the Carob Legacy Circle because we want to ensure that there will always be a Boulder JCC to function as a central gathering space for Jews in Boulder County. We hope that many generations to come will be able to utilize this space and enjoy all that the Boulder J has to offer.
