Life & Legacy Campaign

HTC students are the future leaders of our community. In 2014, HTC was selected as one of 15 organizations in Chicago to participate in the JUF’s Create a Jewish Legacy program. Funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and managed by the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, the Create a Jewish Legacy program will ensure our sustainability and support students for years to come. 

Now in its fourth year, over forty people have committed to leaving a legacy gift to HTC. That number continues to grow. We are grateful to all of our friends who continue to build a vibrant future for HTC. 

A legacy gift can come in various forms and need not impact one's finances during their lifetime. Life and Legacy gifts will be used exclusively to support the HTC Endowment Fund, securing the future of HTC and its vital role within the community. With your help, we hope to guarantee HTC's vibrancy for future generations.
