What Every Jewish Social Worker Should Know About Federated Jewish Fund-Raising

By Henry L. Zucker

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1968

Too frequently, Federation is assumed to be a fund-raising organization that supplies resources to other institutions when in fact, Federation should better be understood as a communal service organization whose member agencies are the raison d'etre for fundraising. Better understanding the mechanics of Federation fundraising can help alleviate this confused understanding of the relationship between Federation and its member agencies. The author discusses the vital role of voluntary organizations in Jewish communal work and their independent fundraising responsibilities, the history and projections of well-known fundraising appeals such as the United Appeal and Community Fund, and the growing interest in endowment funds. Ultimately, a heightened awareness of the seemingly "grubby" world of fundraising will be an essential component of improving the quality of the total Jewish community experience.
