Admin History/Bio
For many years prior to 1917 Toronto Jewish community leaders had recognized the need to centralize fund-raising for all local Jewish charities. The 1912 creation of the Associated Hebrew Charities was a partial improvement, but it proved unable to cope with the pre-war rapid growth in immigration, the effects of the 1916 economic recession, and the funding requirements of many still-unaffiliated agencies.. The positive experiences of newly established Jewish community federations in several American cities did, however, offer a better example for Toronto, where prominent Jewish leaders Edmund Scheuer, Abraham Cohen and Ida Seigel provided the leadership that finally did result in the establishment of a Toronto federation.
The Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Toronto was chartered as a charitable organization under the laws of Ontario in September 1917. Its central goal was to end the frequent, uncontrolled, and competitive fund soliciting by a wide range of individual Toronto Jewish philanthropic and social service institutions and instead substitute a single coordinated city-wide community fundraising effort. This would ensure adequate and accountable funding for all its affiliated organizations and agencies in Toronto.
Original affiliated agencies of the FJPT were: the Ladies Co-operative Board, the Jewish Orphans' Home, the Jewish Girls Club, the Junior Council of Jewish Women, the Hebrew Ladies Maternity Aid and Sewing Circle, the Hebrew Young Ladies Boot and Shoe Society, the Jewish Branch of the Big Brotherhood Movement, the Hebrew Free Loan Society, the Jewish Dispensary, and the Hebrew Burial Society.
The original officers were: President Edmund Scheuer, 1st Vice-President Joseph Singer, 2nd Vice-President Jay J. Allen, 3rd Vice-President Moses Gelber, 4th Vice-President Charles Draimin, Treasurer Eli Pullan, and Honorary Secretary Abraham Cohen. A Board of Trustees consisting of 45 members was also constituted, one-third of whose members were to be replaced each year.
Final decision powers of the Federation were originally vested in the Board, which met monthly and was responsible for funds distribution and the nomination of Officers of the Federation. The Board also had the power to change, by a two-third vote, any Federation by-laws, rules, or regulations. The President chaired all Board meetings and had, along with the Treasurer, signing authority for orders and cheques. In his absence, the President's responsibilities were transferred to the 1st, or other Vice-Presidents, in order. The Treasurer was responsible for receiving all donations and depositing them in the bank. He also had signing authority for disbursals.
A system of committees was also established in order to deal with individual issues such as annual meetings, fund-raising, budgets, day-to-day administration, and policy, constitutional and regulation changes. Recommendations from these committees were sent to an Executive Committee. When vetted, they were then forwarded to the Board of Trustees for final approval. By 1924, a new position of Executive Director was added to the list of officers in order to provide better management of the FJPT administration and to head up the Executive Committee. Also, by this time, six further agencies had become affiliated. These were: Mount Sinai Hospital, the Jewish Boys' and Girls' Camps, Jewish Big Sisters, the Family Welfare Bureau, the Federation Health Clinic and the Federation Employment Bureau.
The first office of the FJPT was at 206 Beverly St., but by 1924 it was headquartered at 218 Simcoe St. and by 1928 it had moved to 179 Beverley St., which was renamed "Scheuer House" after the FJPT's first president.
The 1929 onset of the Great Depression created unprecedented and ever-growing service and monetary demands on the FJPT. Unable to cope, a major change was urgently required. In 1938 the FJPT was thus absorbed into a new and larger organization with an expanded mission and reorganized fund-raising operations, the United Jewish Welfare Fund.
Although the FJPT was absorbed into the UJWF in 1938, meetings of the FJPT Board of Management (responsible for funds redistribution to the FJPT's affiliated agencies) continued to January, 1939 when these responsibilities were finally transferred to the UJWF.

Under the original articles of the FJPT, an annual meeting was to be held in March or April each year, commencing with 1918. The main business of such meetings was the submission of a full report on the previous year's activities, and also to hold the election of a new group of 15 Trustees to replace those 15 which were retiring. Forty members were necessary to constitute a quorum of annual meetings.
Scope and Content
Series consists of the minutes of the annual meetings of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies from 1918 to 1920 and for the 1935-1936 year. Also included are minutes of a special meeting in 1935 and general meetings in 1918 and 1922.

From the beginning of its operation, the FJPT distributed an annual report. Although originally titled an "Annual Statement", it was meant to inform the community about its funding activities and organizational changes resulting from its annual meeting. Its central component, the alphabetical donor lists, was however seen by Toronto Jewish residents as a way of publicly lauding the generosity of donors while by implication shaming those community residents who were not contributing.
Scope and Content
Series consists of the published annual reports of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies. Only four of these publications are still extant; 1917-1918, 1918-1919, 1924-1925, and 1929. Reports contain lists of officers, managers and trustees as well as the names and descriptions of affiliated organizations receiving funds. Information about new by-laws, rules and internal organizational changes are also found here. The largest component of each report was always an alphabetical list of individual and corporate donors, showing how much each contributed.
Of special note are the descriptions of the various charitable organizations supported by the FJPT. Reports from some, but not all, years also contain donor addresses. In several cases these annual reports may be the sole source for information about these early Jewish community charities.

The original FJPT Board of Trustees membership was set at 45, with 15 serving at a time and a 15 being replaced annually. With the passage of time, and especially after 1929, new Board members became harder to find, while remaining members rarely attended the occasional scheduled meetings. By the early 1930's finding a quorum became virtually impossible and a 12 member Board of Management reporting to the Executive Committee was constituted to assume the responsibilities of the Board of Trustees. A small nominating sub-committee was utilized to select members of the Board of Trustees.
Scope and Content
Series consists of two sub-series. Sub-series 1 contains minutes, correspondence and reports of meeting of the Board from 1919 to 1925. Sub-series 2 contains Minutes of the Nominations Sub-committee of the Board from 1935 and 1936.

The Executive Committee of the FJPT was the original management team responsible for the ongoing operations of the organization. It consisted of the officers of the FJPT; the Honorary President, the President (who acted as Committee Chair), all four Vice-Presidents, the Treasurer, the Honorary Secretary, and the Executive Director. Regular meetings were held monthly, but occasional special meetings were sometimes called to deal with emergencies or special events. All of its policy and procedures recommendations were passed to the Board of Trustees for final approval. Edmund Scheuer was its first Chair and remained on the Committee as Honorary President throughout the 1920s.
Although this committee was established in 1918 and existed until at least 1934, no meeting minutes remain from the years between 1924 and 1937.
Scope and Content
Series consists of meeting minutes of the Executive Committee of the FJPT.

Admin History/Bio
The Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Toronto was incorporated in Ontario in March 1917 to coordinate the fundraising activities of Jewish charitable, philanthropic, and social service agencies in Toronto. In 1918, ten separate agencies were funded by the FJPT. By 1937, fourteen agencies were funded. The Great Depression of the 1930s and the development of several newer Jewish aid, education and medical care organizations created both increased need for resources and growing competition for ever-more scarce dollars. Within a very few years this funding crisis forced a major review of the organization.
During 1936 a series of special meetings of leading individuals were held to examine the income and expenditures of all Toronto Jewish agencies and also to speculate about the need for a new Toronto Jewish "Community Chest" as the sole fund-raising organization for a federation of all Jewish agencies including the FJPT. In 1938, the new United Jewish Welfare Fund was formally constituted. Added to the FJPT's previous list of Toronto client agencies in 1938 were: the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Hebrew National Association, the Jewish Immigrant Aid Association, the Mizrachi Society, the Toronto Free Loan Association, the Geverkshaften, and Old Folks Home, and the United Palestine Appeal, raising the total number of agencies to 22.
When the State of Israel was established in 1948, the UJWF's annual fundraising campaign was combined with the CJC's United Palestine appeal to form a new, combined campaign named the United Jewish Appeal (UJA). In 1967, the UJA name was legally changed to the United Jewish Appeal of Metropolitan Toronto.
In mid-1976, the organization's public name was changed to the Toronto Jewish Congress. Although initially thought of as a merger between the UJWF and the CJC, the actual result was the expansion of the UJWF responsibilities to include local education and welfare services previously shared with the Canadian Jewish Congress, Central Region. The UJWF, however, remained the legal senior entity.
In 1991 the public name was again changed to the Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto and in 1999, to UJA Federation of Greater Toronto. By this date, over 30 beneficiary and affiliated agencies, 49 affiliated schools and five Federation departments were fully or partly funded by the UJA Federation.
In June, 2010, the organization altered its legal structure, with the senior legal entity becoming the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of 25 series: Annual Meetings, Annual Reports, Board of Directors, Constitution Committee, Executive Committee, Officers Committee, Budget and Finance Committee, Administration Committee, Social Planning Committee, Committee on Capital Needs and Planning, Central Committee on Scholarships in Aid, Joint Committee of the BJE and UJWF Study on Jewish Education, Nominations Committee, Pension Fund Committee, Coordinating Committee, Special Ad Hoc and Temporary Committees, Annual Campaign, Client Agencies, Joint Committee of the CJC and the UJWF, Committee on Community Organization, Sub-Committee on Construction and Administration of Community Schools, Joint Committee on Fundraising, Personnel Committee, Community Leadership Development Council, and Israel at Fifty Community Celebration.

Admin History/Bio
United Jewish Welfare Fund's annual general meeting is the annual gathering of general delegates and members of the UJA Federation Council. In general, the Annual Meeting is adjourned after the introductory speeches, then the Council convenes for its meeting, adjourns and the Annual Meeting is re-convened. The Council is made up of delegates representing synagogues, agencies, schools, communal organizations, societies and landsmenshaften of the Toronto community. It is responsible for electing the Federation President, Governors and directors of UJA Federation, as well as appointing auditors, introducing and approving the by-laws of UJA Federation/UJWF. Until 2005, the AGM included the presentation of the Shem Tov volunteer recognition awards, the Leadership Development Awards, the Ben Sadowski Award of Merit for outstanding volunteer contributions, and beginning in 1997, the Phil Granovsky Award for Campaign Excellence. The AGM was usually followed by a reception.
Starting in 1975, when the merger of CJC's Central Region and UJWF was initiated, there continued to be multiple annual meetings for the organizations that today are encompassed by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto. In the second half of the 1970s, during the interim period before the adoption of a constitution for the new Toronto Jewish Congress, CJC and UJWF, though they began to have joint meetings and programs, continued to operate separately with separate executives. Once the establishment of TJC was finalized, UJWF "ceas[ed] to exist as a functional community organization" but remained as a "wholly owned subsidiary" of TJC. UJWF remained a legal entity and a partner in the United Jewish Appeal campaign, and was separate insofar as it produced its own financial reports and held its own annual meetings. Similarly, the UJA, as a program of UJWF, held its own annual meetings.
Scope and Content
Series consists of meeting agendas, minutes, programmes, speeches, delegate and nominee lists, correspondence and audio recordings of annual meetings of the United Jewish Welfare Fund/Toronto Jewish Congress/Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto/UJA Federation from 1939 to 2009, and photographs from annual meetings and awards receptions from 1978 to 2004.

Scope and Content
Series consists of the published annual reports of the United Jewish Welfare Fund from 1938 to 2007. Aside from the 1944 report, there is a complete run from 1938 to 1966. Missing editions from later years are from the periods 1967 to 1972, 1975 to 1978, and 1992 to 2003.
Although all records in this series were created by the United Jewish Welfare Fund, from 1948 onwards the titles of individual volumes display the name of the fund-raising appeal portion of the UJWF. Thus the title reference is to the United Jewish Appeal from 1948 to 1975, to the Toronto Jewish Congress form 1976 to 2000, and to the United Jewish Appeal Federation from 2000 to 2008.
Many individual annual reports include:an "Honour Roll" of contributors, a list of all UJWF officers and executives, detailed list of all those involved in the annual fund-raising campaign, a statement of annual revenues and expenditures, and a schedule of grants to all recipient agencies. Most also include brief descriptions of the missions and accomplishments of the recipient organizations.
