Strategic Outcomes

Community Priorities: An Overview

In 2013, Federation’s Board of Directors asked a strategic question: How should we focus our funds to maintain the vibrant Jewish community we enjoy today?

After several months of work with community stakeholders, five Community Priorities emerged. Ever since, these priorities have served as guidance for everything that Federation does.

Why Strategic Outcomes are important to your Program Based Funding Application:

It’s important to us – and to the community – to ensure every program we fund is poised to produce outcomes consistent with the Priorities.

That’s where the Strategic Outcomes come in.

The Community Priorities are broad. Beneath each priority, we identified more tangible goals and outcomes. With these Outcomes, we can be sure that every dollar invested in Federation is working toward our Community Priorities.

When you submit your Letter of Inquiry for Program Based Funding, you’ll need to let us know which Strategic Outcome(s) your program addresses.

Below, you can expand the goals to explore Outcomes within each goal.
