Dear Community Member, Our 2012 fiscal year was an important one. We laid the groundwork for critical new changes to take hold in coming years. We’ve also continued working as diligently as possible to maximize every resource available. According to our audited financials for fiscal year 2012, our Enterprise, which combines the Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado and the Jewish Community Foundation, raised a total of $12.6 M in combined operating income, a strong achievement in this uncertain economic environment. As you know, we began an organizational transformation process in the last year that we call Reimagining Federation for the 21st Century. Our commitment to our mission has never been stronger. Even as we were beginning these changes, Federation was responding to disasters like the Colorado Wildfires while still fundraising for local, national and international organizations. Additionally, we were funding and managing critically important community programs and services like the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), the Young Adult Department (YAD) and the Israeli Shlichah program (our Israeli emissary). We also provide valuable marketing community tools like our What’s Happening in Jewish Colorado eNews and the website, our community’s portal to stay connected to all that’s going on in local Jewish life. Through our Flagship Fund, we are able to provide funding to our partner agencies for the most critical programs and services in the Jewish world. We respond to crises in a moment’s notice, but that’s not all that we do. We also support organizations through Total Choice Tzedakah (TCT) giving and donations from Donor-Advised Funds (DAF). In addition, we are uncovering new ways to serve the community through technology and social media. We’ve been upgrading and redesigning to make it as easy to use as possible. We are leveraging tools like Facebook and Twitter, as well as text messaging for our community to be able to respond to crisis in real time. We will continue to use these tools as innovation remains top of mind for us in the coming year. Thanks to our donors, volunteers and partners who have made tzedakah a part of their own life’s mission. Your support is helping us pursue our mission to build and sustain Jewish life in Colorado, Israel and around the world.
