Life and Legacy Program

The Soloway Jewish Community Centre, along with thirteen other local Jewish organizations, have made a commitment to work together in support of the future of the Ottawa Jewish community. Together with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) we are implementing the Life & Legacy Program to help ensure the continuation of the Soloway JCC.

LIFE & LEGACY is a four-year partnership program that assists communities across North America, through partnerships with Jewish Federations and Foundations to promote after-lifetime giving to build endowments that will sustain valued organizations and vibrant Jewish communities for the next generation and beyond.

For more than 65 years, the JCC has been an integral part of Ottawa’s Jewish community. We are the centre of Jewish life, bringing people together to learn, celebrate and socialize. Help us ensure the future of the SJCC. Be remembered forever with a gift in your will, trust, retirement account, or life insurance policy.
