The Role of Functional Agencies in Community Planning

By M.C. Gettinger

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1951

The author discusses the relationship between Jewish Federations, and other centralized planning and fundraising bodies in the Jewish community, and the service agencies which they fund, basing his conclusions on the experiences of his agency, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Among the principles he identifies are: avoid developing programs the need for which has not been recognized adequately by the community; planning must include the participation of both functional and central agencies; budgeting must be related to planning; and the central agency must take responsibility to avoid duplicated services.
