New York Federation Raises $200M — Up 10%

UJA-Federation of New York raised $207.8 million in its recently completed fiscal year, nearly a 10 percent increase over last year.

The Jewish federation said it raised the money from nearly 53,000 donors in the fiscal year that ended June 30. Of the $207.8 million raised, $150.8 million came through its annual campaign, while $33.9 million was through planned giving and endowments, and $23.1 million was raised for capital projects and special initiatives.

The new total was $21.8 higher than the previous fiscal year for the largest Jewish federation in the world.

“Over the past year, our community proved its resolve to support those in need — whether displaced persons in Ukraine, children in Sderot [in southern Israel], or agencies in New York that required our assistance and expertise,” the federation’s CEO, Eric Goldstein, said in a news release issued Monday by the organization. “Our community response underscores the vital, unique role UJA-Federation plays as a global safety net, protecting vulnerable populations and providing significant resources to address the most pressing needs, both in crisis and every day.”

Goldstein joined UJA-Federation last July.

UJA-Federation, which works with almost 100 beneficiary agencies and supports causes both locally and overseas, claims to be the world’s largest local philanthropy.
