Federation Announces 2016 Funding

This from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle‘s Web site:

For Fiscal Year 2016, which began July 1, 2015, the Federation Board of Directors awarded 53 Community Campaign grants totaling $2,152,648. In addition, $91,201 was allocated to the Contingency Fund, Emergency Capital Needs Fund, Research Fund, Taglit-Birthright Israel, and Welfare Funeral Fund.

What and how the Federation funds things changes year over year (for example, they may fund a new program one year, but not the next), but it is interesting to see trends over time for some local programs:

Program 2014 2015 2016
UW Hillel $130k $115k $110k
All Schools Funding $306k $257k $212k
Jewish Community Center $170k $195k $136k
Jewish Family Services $315k $258k $273k
