DENVER (Feb. 3)
The Allied Jewish Campaign in this city has set its 1965 quota at $960,000, aiming for $100,000 more than the amount raised in 1964, it was announced by Norman Davis, chairman of the drive.
The need for increasing Denver’s annual contribution to the United Jewish Appeal and for meeting higher budgets by some of the local agencies were given as the reasons for the increased goal by the new president of the Allied Council of Denver, Eugene Weissberg. He stressed particularly work done here by the Rose and Beth Israel Hospitals, the Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Family Service and the activities of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation League.
Pleas for the elimination of “fund-raising chaos” by giving priority to the Allied Campaign “above all other causes” were voiced by the outgoing president, M.J. Baum, and by Nathan Rosenberg, executive director. Mr. Rosenberg, criticizing “the unwarranted number of multiple appeals which reduce the priority” of the Allied drive, said that some agencies act “unilaterally.” He emphasized the need for avoiding “duplication and waste” in local campaigning.
