Factors that Influence Decisions in Community Planning

By Arnold Gurin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1961

Jewish fundraising, like that of secular political organizations, is driven both by the perceived urgency of a cause and the personal investment of organizational leaders. As Jewish fundraising becomes more centralized, the balance between communal need and visionary leadership becomes more tenuous, and local agencies become less coherent. The author states that "the federation attempts to maintain a workable equilibrium, modifying leadership patterns and programs sufficiently to develop maximum contributions of newer groups without losing the support of older ones."
