About UJA

We’re the largest local philanthropy in the world, and we make it easy to get involved in the causes you care about. We’re your connection to the New York Jewish community. And the impact you want to have on the world.

Why UJA?


We’ve Got Reach.

We work together with hundreds of nonprofits so we can take on multiple issues efficiently and effectively.

We’re Nimble.

We mobilize at a moment’s notice when disaster strikes.

We’re Diverse.

Our tent is wide open to all. We believe that when Jews of all backgrounds come together, we’re at our strongest.

Last year, UJA provided $154.5 million in grants and other support to nonprofits and initiatives in New York, in Israel, and around the world.

As a UJA Young Leader, you help make all this possible.
