These last few years, we’ve faced unremitting crises in our own neighborhoods and in places far away. Working shoulder to shoulder with our partners, we’ve been able to offer relief and real solutions. We’ve saved lives.
Today, the challenges keep coming. We’re called to respond to pervasive poverty and hunger. Escalating antisemitism and anti-Zionism. War in Ukraine. A mental health epidemic. Polarization within our own community. All of this is happening against the backdrop of economic uncertainty that’s leaving no one untouched.
— even in crisis (especially in crisis). We dare to DO. Because we have the resources, the know-how, and the network to move mountains. Powerfully and purposefully. We’ve proven it, again and again and again.
Every day, we’re getting people the help they need, providing the Jewish connections they crave, and mobilizing our community to come together as a force for good.
While today’s challenges are great, our resolve is greater.
When you give to UJA, you’re supporting $150 million in grants awarded annually to a network of nonprofit partners and hundreds of grantees in New York, in Israel, and around the world.
Millions of Dollars in Government Funding
UJA advocates at the federal, state, and city level for millions of dollars in government funding, benefiting the social service sector, nonprofit security, Holocaust survivors, Jewish day schools, and more.
We raise millions of dollars in capital funding on behalf of our partners to buy, construct, and renovate facilities to meet our community’s changing needs.
Economies of Scale
We provide our partners an array of cost-saving and consultancy services: Professional development. Technical support. Savings on insurance. Help with investment management.
Massive Savings on Overhead
We rent UJA-owned properties to our partners at a nominal cost, saving network nonprofits $26 million annually — money they can spend on helping people.
That’s how we strengthen our network of partners from the ground up. And that’s how we’re prepared to handle any crisis thrown our way.
When you give to UJA, you’re impacting a broad range of issues — all at once. Some are consistently critical areas of focus, like caring for Holocaust survivors. Or strengthening Israel as we celebrate its milestone 75th year of statehood. Others, like those that follow, rise to the surface with new urgency, a reflection of the times we live in.
Coming in 2023, we’re building a new Brooklyn hub that will offer an array of social services — all under one roof. From funding food pantries to government advocacy, we’re fighting hunger with everything we got. Learn more >
We're educating people within and outside the Jewish community on what antisemitism is and how to fight it, so they can help us drown-out anti-Jewish hate. Learn more >
We’re helping devastated refugees who need our financial and emotional support integrate into new communities — whether they remain in Europe, choose Israel, or resettle here in New York. Learn more >
We’re investing in mental health services. Offering solutions to loneliness. And addressing domestic violence. For those who may feel shrouded in darkness, we’re shining a light. Learn more >
