As United Funds reviews its system of contributing to Jewish communal service agencies at the dawn of the 1970s, these agencies must demonstrate their relevancy and priority. The author suggests that this challenge is good for the agencies, which have become too assumptive and reliant on United Funds contributions. By rededicating themselves to their sectarian Jewish character, the agencies will be able to attract stronger support from the Jewish community. As well, these agencies must take responsibility for raising more of their own funds, turning to well-to-do members of the community. This will not only strengthen the agency but also create lasting bonds among a pluralistic Jewish community.
