What is The Kuriansky Teen Tzedakah Corps?

The Kuriansky Teen Tzedakah Corps, a program of The United Jewish Federation of Greater Stamford, New Canaan and Darien, is a teen philanthropic leadership program designed to train the next generation of community philanthropists. Corps members meet monthly on Sunday evenings to learn about the fundamentals of philanthropy and conduct a full grant allocation process. This year, KTTC will allocate funds to organizations in Stamford, New Canaan, and Darien that focus on helping people sustain themselves.


The Kuriansky Teen Tzedakah Corps seeks to fund a minimum of one and maximum of four organizations in the region. Funding requests should not exceed $1,500. Corps members will conduct site visits and/or representatives from your organization will be invited to briefly present your proposal at an upcoming Corps meeting in Spring 2019.


Questions about this program may be directed to Jessie Katz at Jessie@ujf.org.
