The Byron Preiss Children’s Fund, an initiative of UJA-Federation’s Publishing Division, was established to enhance children’s lives with educational services that benefit children of all ages and backgrounds in New York and around the world. Byron Preiss understood that through education, children develop a sense of cultural identity and self-esteem.
The Byron Preiss Children’s Fund has raised over half a million dollars to directly benefit thousands of children. Many of these young people have special needs and learning differences. Others recently arrived in a new country and needed a helping hand learning another language and culture.
The programs supported by the Byron Preiss Children’s Fund welcomed these children into enriching, interactive environments and, encouraged them to reach their educational and social abilities, while facilitating Byron’s dream of making literacy and education a top priority for all children.
Today, your gift to the Byron Preiss Children’s Fund will enable UJA to help close the gaps in educational opportunity and achievement as a result of the pandemic and help us ensure that every child, no matter his or her backgrounds, has the tools to succeed.
