Download PDF for this date

George Friedland, an associate chairman of the Federation of Jewish Agencies Building Fund here, has made an undesignated contribution of $100, 000 to the Fund, it was announced today by Kevy K. Kalserman, chairman of the special, $15, 360, 000 drive.

The Fund drive covers some 30 projects for new construction for Federation agencies, and many of the givers are earmarking their contributions to those agencies that interest them most. However, Mr. Friedland said his gift is deliberately without designation, in order to aid other projects which “may be just as important but not so fortunate as to engage the attention of some of our generous contributors.”
