During the 2015-16 allocations process, agencies met together to present their compelling needs and accomplishments to the allocations committee, this year chaired by Laura Kreitzer and Debbie Taub. Each agency presented a synopsis of their most critical need, which helped to further educate and enlighten committee members and representatives from other agencies present. The Tampa Jewish Federation was able to increase its core allocations to these agencies by 12.5 per cent as well as boost its allocation to Israel and international programs.
