High Impact Giving: How the Community Itself Decides Where Our Community Dollars Go
"The Federation movement is still the most effective collective consensus-based system of action that the Jewish world and, arguably, the entire philanthropic world has ever known when it comes to addressing needs, initiating new ideas, transforming communities and – yes – saving lives. —Richard Friedman, longest-serving director of a Federation (37 years)
In the world of philanthropic best practices, the way we allocate campaign funds is known as high impact giving. In sum, the processes we have in place allow for the most powerful use of your gift.
Allocating Annual Campaign funds is a fair, democratic, and participatory process. Our diverse, essential group of more than 100 volunteers who spend 650 hours over six months make sure your gift goes to the local programs that most effectively address the most critical needs in our community, and that best support and nurture Jewish life locally, globally, and in Israel. They make sure your gift will be used wisely and with the greatest impact.
In sum, our process works for the greater good. Our Planning and Allocation volunteers are the epitome of a collaborative, engaged, participatory community. We are grateful for their energy, skills, and time.
