American Jewish Conference Hits Budgeting Plan Urged by Council of Jewish Federations

Opposition to the national budgeting plan recommended by the officers of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds was voted by the executive committee of the American Jewish Conference, it was announced today.

“The executive committee recognizes the value of the information which the Council provides to its membership communities to enable them to budget their funds equitably but it strongly opposes the adoption by the Council of the authority to evaluate aims, purposes and validity of program of any of the agencies applying for funds,” the executive committee stated.

“The executive committee further urges that the delegates and constituent organizations of the American Jewish Conference consider the proposal on national budgeting, and advise the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds of their opposition to the national budgeting plan,” the statement said.
