Federation Philanthropy for the Future

By Charles Edelsberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2004

Jewish community federations have historically proven themselves to be superlative fundraising organizations. Unfortunately, there is precious little evidence that federations are as accomplished at granting money as they are at raising it. Urgent community needs and compelling environmental factors should motivate the entire federation system to focus attention, resources, and performance on all aspects of grantmaking best practices. To remain relevant to the next generation of donors, federations must become both highly participatory and measurably effective as philanthropic enterprises.
