Led by the efforts of Campaign Chairs Leanne Matlow and Craig Walters, and the Chair of UJA Women's Philanthropy, Perri Kirshenblatt, along with our committed and passionate volunteers, United Jewish Appeal’s Annual Campaign aims to strengthen Jewish life and assist Jews in need in Toronto, Israel, and around the world.
A gift to United Jewish Appeal's Annual Campaign provides unrestricted funds to meet urgent, ongoing humanitarian and social service needs of Jews locally and globally, to strengthen our community’s relationship with Israel, to grow Jewish education and identity, and to counter antisemitism. In all of these efforts, our primary focus for 2021 is to ensure a strong community recovery from the COVID-19.
UJA Federation combined operating, fundraising and community planning expenses represent 13.3% of total revenues, inclusive of Annual Campaign (unrestricted and restricted), special campaigns, designated gifts, capital project donations, bequests and endowments, and sundry revenue. Combined estimated revenues total $153 million.
*This pillar includes the portion of COVID-19 relief funds granted to UJA’s social service agency partners before June 30, 2020. This is distinct from UJA’s Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience, the goal of which was to raise an additional $25 million over and above our regular Annual Campaign, dedicated to supporting the Jewish vulnerable through social services and maintaining the essentials of Jewish life. Allocations from the Emergency Campaign will be detailed in the 2021 Impact Report.
