Who We Are:

UJF Women's Philanthropy brings together women from across Stamford, New Canaan and Darien to maximize their collective power and make a profound impact on the future of our community.

"I wish more of our savvy, high-achieving women would wake up to the fact that power and status accrue to those who write checks to worthy causes."
-- Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Author
