Shifting the Fund-Raising Paradigm

By Raquel H. Newman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1998

Pressure to change the prevailing fund-raising paradigm, which is powered by historical patterns of raising major donor dollars that control allocations, is coming from women who are advocates for women's and children's needs. They argue that their needs are not being met currently by their federations. Through the establishment of Jewish Women's Foundations, these activist donors are attempting a new way to define, research, and solve problems affecting women and children. In so doing, they are reaching out to new donors, inspiring established givers, and giving women the knowledge and power to make their own funding decisions apart from the normative federation structure. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.74 no.4, Summer 1998.
