See life through a philanthropic lens? So do we.

UJA-Federation of New York’s Emerging Leaders & Philanthropists is for you — people in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s who want to make an impact. We’re an inclusive philanthropic community, so no matter where you are in your career, we’re your go-to for programs that innovate, intrigue, and inspire.

Our dedicated team of 20 professionals will help you find your place so that you can engage in the ways that mean the most to you.

Develop your leadership skills. Volunteer in a group with us each month or independently through our volunteer center. Give back through one of our many career- or interest-based giving circles. See the world with us on a mission or Birthright trip. Build community through our fellowship programs, Shabbat dinners, and Jewish learning opportunities. Impact millions of people each year through your generosity.

Our Affinity Giving Groups and Young Trade Groups provide educational, social, travel, and volunteer programming.

The Impact of a Gift

With a gift — whether it’s one-time, monthly, or annual — you support a wide range of people. Kids with special needs who get to enjoy summer camp. People getting back on their feet after going through unemployment, poverty, and homelessness. A new generation of social entrepreneurs and innovators. As an emerging leader and philanthropist, you can make a difference today.
