Feasibility Study
Capital/Endowment Campaign

The Need

In 2011, United Hebrew engaged Rubin & Associates to conduct a campaign feasibility study for capital and endowment enhancement for this 175-year old Reform congregation with 1,200 members. Based on the results and recommendations of that study, congregational leadership and staff further engaged the firm to plan and execute a capital and endowment campaign in 2012-2013.
