News Bits: UJAFed NY and JNF-USA
Around the Jewish philanthropic world last week:
UJA-Federation of New York raised a record-breaking $46 million, an increase of $1 million from last year, at its 2014 Annual Campaign kickoff event.
Jewish National Fund’s (JNF-USA) annual 2013 campaign topped $121 million, their largest campaign ever. In addition, JNF is the recipient of a gift of more than $60 million from the estate of John Boruchin, “perhaps the most significant gift in the 112-year history of the organization.”
