How to Allocate

You have a say in where your Tikun Olam money goes!

Follow the six steps below to allocate 40% of your chapter’s contribution to the charities of your choice.

  1. Get a Tikun Olam allocation form and descriptions of tzedakot online. (Your advisor or youth director will receive them automatically by snail mail.)
  2. Add up the amount your chapter donated during the year (e-mail stein@uscj.org if you don’t have complete records).
  3. Multiply the amount you raised by 0.4 (that is, 40%).
  4. Have as many people from the chapter as possible involved in deciding where the 40% is to go. You can divide the money among different organizations.
  5. Fill out the Allocations Form and mail it to: Tikun Olam, 820 Second Avenue, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10017.
  6. Make sure the Allocation Form is mailed to the International Office no later than June 30, 2011.
