Despite Tough Times, One Federation Holds Their Own

from The New Jersey Jewish News:

We really partnered with our agencies

Bucking a national trend, the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County has more than held the line in its upcoming allocations, funding virtually all agencies and institutions at or above last year’s level while instituting new community initiatives.

The federation expects to close its fiscal year June 30 with total revenue of $3.3 million, a decrease of about 1 percent from the year before.

“From a financial resource development standpoint,” said federation associate executive director Susan Antman, “we’ve pretty much held our own – which is remarkable, given the state of the economy, and is a testament to the commitment of the people of Middlesex County.”
