Women's Philanthropy

You have the power to change the lives of Jewish people locally, in Israel, and beyond.


There are many ways to practice tzedakah, righteous acts of giving.

UJA-JCC Greenwich Women’s Philanthropy is a multi-general group of women who make a personal and financial commitment to strengthen Jewish life for individuals and families. Our mission is to inspire and empower women to become leaders in the local community and to help uplift the lives of Jewish children and families at risk through a network of affiliated Federation programs. A gift to the annual UJA-JCC campaign supports local Jewish programming and the good works of UJA-JCC Greenwich.

We welcome you to join the women of UJA-JCC Greenwich! Contact Tracy Daniels.
