YLD Annual Campaign
The Ben-Gurion Society is a national Young Leadership Society sponsored by the Young Leadership Cabinet of the United Jewish Communities (UJC) for young leaders (ages 25 to 45) who make a commitment of $1,000 or more to the Jewish Community Federation’s annual Campaign. Attendance at any of the BGS events requires this commitment. In Stamford, we extend participation in local BGS events for households who are giving at this level.
