An exciting change has been made to the campaign that lets you have a say in where your Federation contributions go. You told us what’s important to you, and we listened.You can now elect to give some of your donation into specific areas that interest you. We are calling these options that you can choose from “Impact Areas," because these choices let you have a bigger financial impact in the area or areas that you select. Keep in mind, you still have the option to give your full donation to the general campaign.When you make a pledge of $200 or more for the Better Together Campaign 2017, you can specify which Impact Area(s) you would like your dollars to go into, if you wish. You may divide your dollars among the general campaign and the Impact areas. It is easy to do and it gives you the opportunity to support the Impact Areas that interest you.
The Impact Areas Are:
1. Sustaining the Community supports the programs and work of the United Jewish Federation of Greater Stamford, New Canaan and Darien. These programs include: The New Jewish Voice, Tapestry, Yom Hashoah, Adult Education Classes, Community Scholar-in-Residence, and Shalom Stamford.
2. Partnering with Local Agencies provides financial support to the 12 local agencies encompassing education, social services, and engagement.
3. Global Jewry supports Jews worldwide. Our Impact Areas give you an opportunity to further divide your gift into more specific designations: Israel, Worldwide, Afula and Gilboa. Afula and Gilboa are projects in our sister city and are gifted to as one entity.
If you have questions about this change for the Better Together Campaign 2017 or if you would like to make a pledge to support the goals of UJF at home, in Israel and around the world, you can contact Rebekah Raz at 203-321-1373 ext 102. Thank you!
