Thank you for your interest in learning more about United Jewish Federation’s campaign for communal needs.  A diverse and strategic think tank of community members met for over a year to assess Federation’s potential impact on the local Jewish community.  This exciting new campaign will focus on communal needs not being met and, through a donor-driven transparent campaign, foster growth in the Stamford, New Canaan and Darien Jewish communities. The programs and projects below have been vetted and selected by a committee representing all facets of our diverse community. 


It’s your community, your choice and your money, so please read through the list below and see how you want your philanthropy to make an impact. 


You can choose to direct your gift to Where it is Needed Most and that will allow for UJF to decide which of these wonderful programs will benefit from your generosity.


Your gift can also be directed toward several different programs, not just one. Make the appropriate selections in the drop down menu on the donation page or below.  UJF will be marketing and fundraising for these programs so 12% has been added to program costs to partially cover these efforts. Click each box below for more detailed information or call Diane Sloyer, UJF, CEO at (203) 321-1373, ext. 105
