The Role of the Federation in Inspiring Research: A Case Study in New York

By Amy L. Sales

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Winter 2010

Federations have a grand vision of community and peoplehood, and their work has great emotional appeal. But the inner workings of federations - the commissions and task forces that concretize the vision and accomplish the work - operate within a rational decision-making model. Because this model depends on good and useful information, federations should continually engage in data gathering. This activity falls into three broad categories: demographic and marketing studies, needs assessment and evaluation research, and organization assessments.
