The Planning & Allocations process has always served as a cornerstone of the Jewish Federation and enables the Federation to support and promote the Jewish community’s initiatives, direction, and strategic plan.
JFSA has made important changes to the current funding model, which will better support agency funding projections as well as generate meaningful community-wide initiatives to sustain a vibrant and engaged San Antonio Jewish community:
1. Funding Schedule
JFSA is shifting from its current annual allocations model to fund longer-term (up to four years) projects carried out over several years as follows (single year funding will continue in the same format as has historically been funded):
2. Funding Operations
In addition to funding programming initiatives, the Federation will offer funding opportunities to support agency operation’s expenses as follows:
3. Federation and Campaign Recognition
In order to continue to raise the necessary funds to support the annual allocations process, agencies must publicly recognize the Federation for funding agency programs. Additionally, agencies must ensure the following:
Twice a year we ask all agencies that receive funding, to submit a check-in form. This helps Federation and agencies track progress, engagement, and is a good indicator for overall success. Federation runs on a fiscal year starting in July and ending in June.
The January form will be an assessment of the first six months (July 1 - December 31) and will be due on January 31st.
The July form will be an assessment of the next six months (January 1 - June 30) and will be due on July 31st.
