An Analysis of Discretionary Fund Appeals Made by the Health And Welfare Agencies in New York City to the Greater New York Fund for the Year 1946
"The Greater New York Fund was established in New York City during 1938 as a means through which voluntary non- profit hospitals, welfare and health agencies of recognized merit may cooperate in obtaining needed financial support for their work from business organizations and employee groups.” The formation of the Greater New York Fund was a very important step towards solving many of the fund raising problems that existed in New York City due to the presence of some 820 health and welfare agencies, most of which conducted their own fund raising campaigns every year. The larger business corporations in the city felt that some means had to be devised whereby; (a.) They could make one single contribution to some agency which would represent all the other agencies and (b. ) they could be assured that only the agencies with acceptable standards would be eligible to participate. These business establishments felt they were in no position to evaluate an agency’s program; therefore, they were willing to delegate this function to one central fund raising organization.
