Accession consists of photographs documenting UJA Federation's community grant allocation ceremonies from 1997, 1999 and 2003. The photographs feature representatives of the Community Planning and Allocations Department and various representatives of chosen community organizations.
The Community Planning and Allocations Department was responsible for awarding financial grants to chosen community organizations and projects. They were involved in the selection and allocation processes.
Under the former Toronto Jewish Congress, community grant allocations was handled by the Social Planning Department, which was responsible for selecting the winning applicants, and the Budget and Finance Department, which was responsible for distributing the grant money. When the Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto was founded, the two functions merged and became the Community Planning and Allocations Department. Under UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, the two functions were once again separated into the Strategic Planning Department and the Budget and Finance Department.
