The New York Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies received a check for $50,000 from John D. Rockefeller, Jr., toward its $5.300,000 budget for the current year.
Mr. Rockefeller’s gift, sent to Henry Morgenthau, former United States Ambassador to Turkey, is the third voluntary contribution for a similar amount by Mr. Rockefeller to the local Jewish charities in as many years.
Additional gifts totaling $71,000 beyond contributions previously announced by the Federation on Sunday brought the drive to within $703,000 of its goal. When the campaign opened October 21 the Federation already had secured $3,522,000 in regular annual subscriptions and needed $1,778,000 more to meet the budgetary needs of its agencies. With the latest announcement of contributions, $1,075,000 has been reported to date.
