The Future Starts Right Now

People like you make UJA-Federation of New York’s life-changing, life-saving work possible. You look beyond yourself. You’re forward thinking and forward moving.

And because UJA’s the same, it’s the perfect place to leave your legacy.

Each year planned gifts and spending from UJA’s endowment make up a significant percentage of UJA’s annual budget. These gifts help UJA care for people’s everyday needs right now.

Legacy gifts also create a solid foundation for the future by building our endowment, ensuring that the work of UJA and its partner nonprofits will continue after your lifetime.

The endowment also allows UJA’s swift response to natural disasters and crises like the war in Israel, Hurricane Sandy, and the economic recession.
