The Endowment Book of Life


The Endowment Book of Life (EBOL) program is a planned giving program that offers participants an opportunity to leave both a financial legacy and a historical legacy to the community. A donor makes a promise to leave a bequest to the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba and their family story is inscribed in the Endowment Book of Life.

Endowment Book of Life stories are now available online and in the printed volumes located near the entrance of the Asper Jewish Community Campus. These life stories, though quite different, all share common melodies. Themes of love, determination, perseverance, and success are stitched throughout each testimonial. All stories are complemented by rich and beautiful photographs.
