IMPACT is a monthly series designed to help you get to know our Jewish community and give you a little Federation education. 


Whether you give $10 or $1,800, all young adults are welcome to join in our IMPACT experiences. Each month we visit one of our partner organizations, learn how Federation dollars support these organizations and our community, and participate in an activity or service project. 


Have an idea of an agency you think we should highlight? Interested in attending these experiences? Email Becca Levine at beccal@jewishkc.org.
