Recapturing Federation's Strategic Edge

By Robert Hyfler

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2000

Federations can recapture their dominance in the Jewish philanthropic marketplace by focusing on and reinventing four classic characteristics and actitivities of Federation: dynamic lay networks, a reinvigorated lay professional partnership, impact giving and "big ideas," and the global reach of their mission and activities.
