Problem of Multiple Jewish Drives to Be Studied in Milwaukee

Download PDF for this date

The Milwaukee Jewish Welfare Fund has established a special committee to study the problem created here by multiple fund campaigns which, according to a Federation financial report, siphoned off $1,200,000 in capital and current operations campaigns in this city in 1953.

The multiple campaigns, some of them conducted without clearance from the welfare fund, are considered one of the major reasons for the diminishing returns in the all-community, one fund annual campaign. The committee will seek to acquaint the Jewish community with the problem, to make remedial recommendations and to work out adequate methods of control.
