NOW AND • •
All the good things our community does for our
people, at home and overseas, could not be accom-
plished without financial resources.
Without our annual appeal -- the Allied Jewish
Campaign -- and the endowment funds that support
special programs and services, we could not im-
prove the quality of life for our families, or educate
our children, or care for our aged.
This was a banner year for both the Campaign and
the Federated Endowment Fund. Thanks to the
Campaign Challenge Fund, thousands of contribu-
tors were motivated to increase their pledges, and
many new contributors joined in for a final Cam-
paign total of $26,950,000.
The value of endowment funds grew this year to
$95 million. Eighty-five new funds were created,
enabling Federation and its agencies to extend their
network of care.
Federation is proud of its reputation for integrity and
financial accountability, for efficiency and effec-
tiveness in its operations. In followup to the Strate-
gic Planning Committee recommendations, Federa-
tion and the United Jewish Foundation are already
streamlining operations with a view toward contain-
ing costs while enhancing quality of services.
