Here's a related vignette:
At a recent gig, the building manager for a popular venue located in a Jewish institution was kvetching about the local UJA branch. Apparently, they constantly call asking to use the venue for free, for meetings and smaller events, but always make their annual dinner at a hotel. He finally told them that they'd no longer be welcome to reserve space for free, or even at the institutional discount rate, until they booked a dinner or other significant affair there.
What do you think of this? Is your perspective different because in this case the funds would go to another Jewish institution? Does the UJA owe his venue consideration simply because its also a community institution?
