Admin History/Bio
Superseding the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, the first Annual Campaign of the new United Jewish Welfare Fund took place in 1938. It combined the appeals of 37 organizations into one, eliminating much of the inefficiency and competition of the previous twenty years. Money raised was for agencies and causes new and traditional, local and overseas. Recipients included; the Jewish Immigrant Aid Services, Canadian Jewish Congress, the United Jewish Relief Agencies, the Joint Distribution Committee, and Palestine. In 1938, Campaign could be completed within a mere two weeks and raised $161,000. This figure rose to $348,000 in 1942 and surpassed one million dollars in 1951. When the State of Israel was established in 1948, Campaign was combined with the CJC and the United Palestine appeals into a new, combined campaign and re-named The United Jewish Appeal (UJA).
With different local and world challenges and crises over time, annual campaigns have had a variety of foci: for example, the plight of Displaced Persons in Europe after the Second World War; the 1957 Rescue Campaign for refugees in Russia, Europe and North Africa; the first Emergency Campaign in 1967 in response to the Six Days’ War; and Operation Exodus 1990-1991, which raised funds to aid Soviet Jews.
Early Campaign leadership was provided by lay people. Chairmen of the Campaign Cabinet included Samuel Godfrey, Ben Sadowski, Samuel J. Granatstein, Bernard Vise, Morris S. Till, and Samuel J. Zacks. A small administration committee carried out daily operations, but the bulk of the fundraising work was performed by the Service Council, a group of volunteers who planned, canvassed and evaluated each campaign, as well as organizing educational programs and public meetings. A Women’s Service Council and a Young Peoples’ Service Council also played key fundraising roles.
Canvassing was conducted by volunteers from each professional or trade Division, such as doctors, lawyers, retail sales, etc. The volunteers were responsible for canvassing the members of their own group. A special Women’s Campaign had its own chair, sub-committees and programming. Divisions were further added to reflect the amounts of donations, Top Gifts, and Major Gifts for example. By the 1980s, the Service Councils had given way to professional Campaign Associates employed by UJWF. With further changes to UJWF/UJA Federation’s structure, Campaign first fell under the Financial Resource Development Department, then Integrated Development, and, in 2009, the Centre for Philanthropy. It is now supported by the Donor Relations Management, Donor Research, and Missions/VIP departments which cater to the diverse interests of individual donors.
Through the 1940s and 1950s, face-to-face canvassing was the norm, with donor’s names and gifts published in the UJWF annual report. By the 1960s, an expanding community and a need for efficiency increased the use of the telephone, with regular telethons involving hundreds of volunteers. In 1970, a regular springtime Walk with Israel was included within the rest of Campaign events. In the 21st Century, the internet is used to solicit donations, publicize campaign news and events, and register volunteers for telethons and events like the Walk.
Scope and Content
Series consists of two sub-series, Walk with Israel (sub-series 17-1) and General Campaign Records (sub-series 17-2).

Admin History/Bio
Although originally referred to as "contributions from subscribers", by the 1920s the annual fund-raising campaign efforts of the FJPT were simply referred to as "Campaign". Beginning in 1917 with a collection of $25,000.00 used to support a group of eleven affiliated charitable organizations, early campaigns relied on face-to-face solicitations, door-to-door collections, and mailed instalments for most of the FJPT income.
By 1924, collections had risen to over $70,000.00 from more than 1,600 donors. Three more "affiliated" agencies could be supported. By 1929 donations had surpassed $140,000.00, but thereafter declined dramatically by almost 50% as the Great Depression reduced wages and employment while multiplying need. At the same time, collections fell dramatically when many donors became unable to fulfill their pledges. Campaign results were thus woefully inadequate to fund the traditional social service organizations while now competing with the campaigns of newer organizations such as the CJC, the Palestine Appeal, and Toronto's impoverished Jewish educational institutions.
In 1938 the FJPT was supplanted by the United Jewish Welfare Fund. This successor organization was created with an expanded mandate to improve and re-unify fund-raising within Toronto's Jewish Community. Its success would underwrite the following half-century of expansion of Toronto's Jewish community facilities and programs.
Scope and Content
Series consists of one sub-series containing reports documenting the 1934 and 1935 fund-raising campaigns of the FJPT. Series also contains one wooden ruler promoting the 1931 FJPT fund-raising campaign.
Notes
Although the organization was created in 1917, the only remaining documentation on FJPT campaigns from 1917 through 1933 is that found in the Annual Reports of 1917, 1924-25 and 1929.

Admin History/Bio
The cultural and education wing of the northern branch of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. was supposed to be built as part of the original northern branch, opened in 1961. However, lack of funds caused the wing to be put on hold until the 1970 completion program began. The addition of the cultural and educational wing of the northern branch included the Koffler Centre for the Arts, the Leah Posluns Theatre and improved physical education facilities.
Scope and Content
This file contains a pamphlet for a founders wall of the northern branch, a fundraising booklet outlining the goals of the completion campaign and some press releases.

Administrative History
UJA Federation's Tomorrow Campaign is Canada’s largest non-profit community development project. It is Federation's response to the need for new facilities and services brought about by the growth of Toronto’s Jewish community.
The Tomorrow Campaign is mandated with the fundraising and creation of three campuses for Jewish life in the GTA. The Downtown District, serving Toronto's growing Jewish population in the city core, is anchored by the new Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre at Bloor & Spadina and the Wolfond Centre for Jewish Campus Life at Harbord & Huron. Central Campus, on Bathurst north of Sheppard, will include the new Prosserman Family Jewish Community Centre, where the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre is currently located, a new Koffler Centre for the Arts, the Centre for Jewish Knowledge & Heritage and a renovated Lipa Green Building for Jewish Community Services. The Lebovic Jewish Community Campus, at Bathurst & Weldrick north of Rutherford, is designed to provide programs and services for York Region's Jewish community of 60,000 - the fastest growing in Canada. The Lebovic Campus will be highlighted by the Kimel Family Education Centre, housing the northern branch of the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto (CHAT); the Schwartz-Reisman Centre offering recreational, educational, cultural, social and fitness facilities; community services; a United Synagogue Day School and other schools as well.

ca. 125 photographs : col. (50 negatives) ; 10 x 12 cm and 35 mm
Date
1998-2003
Scope and Content
Accession consists of photographs of various Women's Campaign and Advocacy events including Mizrachi missions, telethons, annual meetings and officer installations and a protest against the abuse of the traditional marriage Get.
Custodial History
The records were in the office of Maxine Bessin, the former director of Women's Campaign. They were transferred to the Archives by her assistant Brenda Cooper.
Administrative History
UJA Federation Women's Campaign and Advocacy (WC&A) was the precursor name for Women's Philanthropy, the current women's division of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto. It grew out of a merger between the former Jewish Women's Federation (JWF), an advocacy group with representatives from various women's groups in the city of Toronto, and the UJA Women's Campaign, the women's fundraising division of the United Jewish Appeal. Although governed by separate executives and mandates, the two groups worked together to raise money and provide services through affiliated Jewish community agencies and organizations. Together, they functioned as the Toronto Jewish Congress' Women's Division and the subsequent UJA Federation Women's Division until their official merger around 2000 created the UJA Federation's Women's Campaign and Advocacy.
