Allied Jewish Campaign

Give, they need your help!

The Allied Jewish Campaign raised money in Michigan to help Jews in the United States and Europe. Between 1932 and 1940, its theme shifted from taking care of the needy in the United States to supporting rescue and survival of Jews abroad. In the same period, its fundraising goal rose from $165,000 to $925,000, and the share sent abroad increased to nearly 60 percent.
