o Barbara Nurenberg, JVS
president and CEO, this
year's 1 percent increase in
funding from the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
won't cover her agency's increase in
She also understands that the
Southfield-based JVS — a career
development and social service agency
— is not alone. All local agencies
under the Federation umbrella will
receive a 1 percent across-the-board
"These are no ordinary times," she
said, citing the need to funnel more
funds to Israel and the ailing state of
the U.S. economy "We're all in the
Nurenberg said that the local agen-
cies were told back in December of
the 1 percent increase.
"Even though we didn't - have the
final word from them, it was our
assumption, from what had been said,
that that was the best we could
expect," she said. "They made it very
clear which way the winds were blow-
ing. There were no surprises for any-
On June 18, the Federation Board
of Governors approved the budget
developed by its staff for spending the
$37.25 million in pledges made dur-
ing the 2002 Annual Campaign. After
fund-raising costs and uncollectible
pledges, nearly $32.6 million was
available for allocation.
Although the pledged amount shows
a 22 percent increase over last year's
campaign total of $31.5 million, it
included the $6.88 million raised for
the Israel Emergency Challenge Fund.
At the start of the campaign in
August, a $32 million goal was set,
including the Berman-Handlernan
Challenge Fund, which matched all
new gifts and increases up to
During the course of the campaign,
the Challenge Fund changed to the
Israel Emergency Fund, and
Federation set a $7 million goal to be
used for Israel's social services and
non-defense needs. $1 million of the
amount has already been used to send
about 300 Israeli children to Camp
Maas in Ortonville this summer (see
Cover Story on page 88).
Overall, the plan allocates
$12,229,478 for local operations such
as schools, social service agencies and
the Jewish Community Center, and
$19,713,317 for Israel, overseas pro-
grams and the Federation's share for
the United Jewish Communities oper-
According to Howard Neistein,
Federation chief planning officer,
excluding the Emergency Fund
amount, the split between local and
overseas allocation amounts remains at
the Federation goal of 50 percent.
Linda Z. Klein, chair of the Allo-
cations and Steering Committee, said
changes in the economic situation and
the crisis in Israel changed the alloca-
We knew that we would be cam-
paigning for the Israel Emergency
Fund and that we would need supple-
mental monies from our campaign
reserves to even support the 1 percent
increase from the campaign for local
needs," she said. "Our goal was to
make sure our agencies could continue
the excellent work they must do and
yet to understand the realities which
were and are facing the community."
Safety Net Adjustments
Norman Keane, executive director of
Southfield-based Jewish Family
Service, said he understands the
Federation's decision, and the JFS will
"There's a knowledge that we all
need to work within realities," he said.
"JFS is a safety R et for our communi-
ty, so our prioritization is in crisis situ-
Keane said JFS would keep meeting
the needs of the people "at the door,"
but outreach programs with day
schools would not be expanded.
He cited special Federation grants of
an additional $1.8 million to some
local agencies that would help JFS go
beyond 1 percent.
The grants have been set up from
restricted funds over the last three
years with the Jewish Life Fund (part
of the Millennium Campaign for
Detroit's Jewish Future) and the Trust
for the Jewish Elderly.
