External Community Allocations

What are external community allocations?

  • Our external allocations are designed to support educational, social service and charitable programs that promote the Jewish values of K’lal Yisrael (taking responsibility for one another), Tzedakah (charity and righteousness), and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).

How are allocations determined?

  • Applications are sent to selected organizations each fall. Applications are then reviewed by Federation Allocations Committee and Committee develops recommendation presented to the Federation Board of Directors. Board of Directors then approves allocations at the end of each calendar year. Questions about the allocation process? Contact Jill Madsen at jmadsen@shalomdch.org.

How are allocations funded?

  • 100% of external allocations come from the Federations Annual Campaign support.
