The Philanthropic Leadership Group (PLG) represents the ultimate expression of giving. Through PLG, prominent donors in our community are setting a standard of generosity that will shape our efforts for generations to come.
The Philanthropic Leadership Group’s annual Campaign Launch Event is renowned in philanthropic circles — and the essential beginning to each campaign year’s fundraising efforts. The event is held in a private home, and each guest’s minimum contribution is $125,000 to the annual campaign. The October 29, 2014, event with guest speaker, his excellency Shimon Peres, raised $48 million in support of social, educational, and humanitarian services in New York, in Israel, and around the world.
In recognizing these most generous donors, PLG offers exclusive events and customized missions, both domestic and overseas, and the opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals from the New York Jewish community and from around the country. Both of our groups — the Prime Minister’s Council and the King David Society — offer many opportunities to become involved and engaged throughout the year.
Executive for a Day is a one-day program that takes place each year, inviting select donors and lay leaders to shadow senior professionals at UJA-Federation beneficiary agencies for a hands-on experience.
