Download PDF for this date

The combined budget of the institutions affiliated with the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York has a deficit of $2,100,000, Benjamin Lazarus, chairman of the federation’s fund drive, disclosed here over the week-end. Lazarus attributed last year’s deficit to increased costs for commodities, salaries and services. He warned that if the federation’s current campaign, with a goal of $16,500,000, is not successful “the resultant curtailment in federation-affiliated institutions will be even more serious and dangerous.”
