New York (Nov. 1)
Approximately $1.4 million was pledged several days ago by 300 women leaders attending the 51st annual Luncheon for Donors which officially opened the 1971/72 campaign of the Women’s Organization of Federations of Jewish Philanthropies. Mrs. David M. Solinger Advance Gifts Chairman of the luncheon who made the announcement, said that the 1970/71 luncheon raised $1.250 million.
Lawrence B. Buttenwieser, Federation president, told the luncheon guests that the Federation’s enormous campaign effort to enable its 130-member agencies to continue their programs for the people of New York “cannot be accomplished without the creative talents and devoted response of the Women’s Organization.”
This year, Federation has set as its goal $30 million, the amount needed to enable its health social service, educational and recreational agencies to continue essential services to residents in the New York-Westchester-Long Island metropolitan areas.
