UJA-Federation of New York: Attracting the Next Generation of Givers, 16 July 2003 [cached]
According to Laura Spitzer, the fund coordinator and director of UJA-Federation's Jewish Leadership Forum, events and projects are developed to connect participants to one another and to ensure that members are learning more broadly about the challenges and opportunities facing the Jewish community today.
In addition to their shared social concerns, the entrepreneurial nature of the group's participants has made them ideal partners in UJA-Federation's first venture philanthropy fund.

The Jewish Week, 15 July 2002 [cached]
Nine couples ranging in age from 35 to 45 pledged $50,000 a year for three years, and worked closely with the fund coordinator, Laura Spitzer, director of UJA-Federation's Jewish Leadership Forum.
The group's first grant recipient was the Jewish Community House of Bensonhurst.The money paid for a "First Step" program for 200 new Russian immigrants in Brooklyn to acquaint them with American and Jewish culture.
The new immigrants visited the Museum of Jewish Heritage, took a tasting tour of the Lower East Side, and went to see "The Lion King."
"They learned about the quality of our programs," Spitzer says.
Solelim, which has also awarded grants to the Hebrew Free Loan Society, the Binghamton Hillel, and Mitnadvim-Kids Care, a JBFCS community service program for teenagers, is serving as a model for venture philanthropy groups emerging at Jewish federations in other U.S. cities in Canada.
