Our Federation is so completely focused on having the kind of positive and transformational impact on our community and Jewish world that every one of our donors expects. At the same time, we strive to be a top functioning and highly effective nonprofit organization. This week, we held both a Finance Committee meeting and our closing Audit Committee meeting.
Both of these committees are filled with some of the most accomplished, talented and knowledgeable financial minds in Greater Pittsburgh. They take their roles of fiscal oversight with the highest sense of responsibility. For those of us on staff, we welcome their partnership. They make the Federation the best it can be.
Our Finance Committee reviewed a new, easier to understand budget format while ensuring that we are within our budget framework. The Audit Committee met with our independent auditors to both review that our accounting practices are solid and to ensure that we are counting our assets and liabilities correctly.
Donors need to know that their contributions are making a real difference. They also need to know that their hard earned dollars are managed appropriately, efficiently and effectively.
Thank you for entrusting your “tzedakah” to us.
I invite you to participate in this Sunday’s Super Sunday at the JCC in Squirrel Hill. Come and make phone calls to other community members asking them to join you as donors to the 2018 Campaign. Visit jfedpgh.org/supersunday for more information on shift times. The more money we raise, the more we have to count on our Finance and Audit committees to follow the dollars. Let’s make their jobs tougher!
Shabbat Shalom. See you Sunday! Go Steelers!!
