Allocations Philosophy

Invariably, the Federation has managed to achieve a balance as equitable as possible for all concerned and by meeting the needs of our local agencies through allocations and supplementary grants, where indicated. At the same time, there is a strong commitment to our overseas allocations, which has been an historic factor in our successful campaigns. The Jewish Federations Israel/Overseas allocation hovers around 39% of allocatable dollars – one of the highest percentages in the country. The national average is 24%.

Each year the allocations process is reviewed so that changes can be made that are more accommodating to the local agencies, as well as fulfilling Federation responsibilities for overseas needs.
