Flattened Again?

Youth agencies have been given priority by Federation, but a flat
Campaign will pre-empt increases.

s the Allied Jewish Campaign
nears completion with its Days
of Decision, a final plug for
pledges, representatives of agen-
cies catering to young people hope
their agency budgetary needs will
be met.
But there's no guarantee.
If the Campaign does not reach
its $27.5 million target by the end
of Days of Decision on June 17,
these agencies will likely sustain
cuts — even though many of their
programs have been designated
for priority funding.
This year, the board of the
Jewish Federation of Metro-
politan Detroit has targeted "con-
tinuity programming" as a
priority for AJCampaign alloca-
tions. The category includes pro-
grams sponsored by youth groups,
campus Hillels, Jewish day schools
and other institutions geared to-
ward helping Jewish children,
teens and young adults maintain

Federation's board of governors
partly determined the 1993 fund-
ing priorities on the basis of a 1989
demographic survey showing an
increase in intermarriage and as-
similation. The board reasoned
that programs catering to the
needs of Jewish young people
should be supported to counteract
these trends.
Still, if the Campaign is flat, as
it has been for the past two years,
there will be less money for all pro-
grams, including "priority pro-

their Jewish identities:
Special support for these areas
marks a departure from years
past, when agencies that provide
help for popula-
tions at risk, like
the Jewish poor,
were afforded a
larger percentage
of AJCampaign
revenue.

nized that basic
