announced across-the-board
cuts ranging from 8 percent
to 25 percent, including 17
percent for New York City.
"One-fifth of the dollars
those agencies were coun-
ting on won't be available
this year," said Mr.
New York's Jewish Board
of Family and Children's
Services was counting on
$580,000 from the United
Way. It is now expecting
only four-fifths that amount
this year.
Therefore, said Paul
Levine, the board's associate
executive vice president, the
agency is considering trim-
ming some of its volunteer
These include programs
that escort people through
New York's anarchic family
court system and rim a hot
line for battered women.
While the sum may seem
small within the context of a
$70 million total budget,
"this kind of philanthropic
money makes the difference
in providing more than the
basic services, anything that
the government doesn't con-
sider a valid service to reim-
burse, or too sectarian," said
Mr. Levine.
In Los Angeles, similarly,
the Jewish Family Service
has over three years seen its
United Way grant slashed
from $705,000 to $320,000.
Each dollar cut, said Ex-
ecutive Director Sandra
King, cuts the amount of
counseling available for
those in need.
Even as California's conti-
nuing recession puts more
and more unemployed Jew-
ish families in need of
counseling for vocational
issues and family problems,
the organization is forced to
extend its waiting lists.
In theory, the central
"federated" campaigns of
the United Way and the
Jewish federations were
designed to eliminate the
need for charities to compete
with each other for donors.
With the failure of the cen-
tral campaigns to meet the
needs, however, this concept
is breaking down and agen-
cies like the Los Angeles
Jewish Family Service are
increasing their efforts to
raise funds independently.
Jewish organizations are
also falling particular victim
to a United Way effort to re-
verse the decline of its cam-
paign. The effort, known as
designated giving, allows
United Way donors to in-
dicate which organizations
their donation is given to.
