Making the J accessible for everyone
Programs, camp, and membership aren’t just available to everyone because we can do so. It’s available because it’s part of who we are.
We work together to build a JCC that is inclusive to all, founded upon the belief that we are stronger when everyone has access to our programs, services, and opportunities to grow. That’s what community wellness is all about.
No matter your background, ability, or means – the J is home for the entire community to enjoy inclusive wellness, high-quality education, and comprehensive social services.
We are blessed to be stewards of our community’s scholarship funds and take seriously our responsibility to make these funds available to all who may need scholarship assistance. When every member of the community can participate in our programs, our community becomes much more than the sum of its members.
Help us to live our values by joining our community.
To be considered for scholarship, please submit the completed scholarship application above, a copy of your most recent 1040 tax return, JCC program applications (Camp, Gan Ami, Kids Center, etc.), Social Security verification letter (if applicable), and any general assistance or food stamp documentation. Applications will not be considered without financial documents. Additional documentation may be requested. All materials are kept in strict confidence.
While our scholarship program is based on a sliding scale, we also take into consideration other circumstances that may affect your ability to pay for membership or specific programs. You will see an opportunity to describe these circumstances listed on page 4 of the application. With Covid-19 affecting so many aspects of our lives, this has been a challenging year for many families. The more you can share, the more accurate the scholarship determination.
If you are hesitant about applying for scholarship or have questions about the process, please contact Samantha ZumMallen at 414-967-8180.
Completed applications and supporting documentation can either be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded using the form below.
