Financial Assistance

As a not-for-profit social service agency that serves the Jewish community and the community at large, the JCC is committed to helping people who need financial assistance. Scholarships are available for membership, preschool, kindergarten, After School at the J and Camp Yachad. The JCC of Central NJ Scholarship Program is funded through the generosity of JCC member donations, the Jewish Federation of Central NJ, the United Way and private foundations. Please note that a new application must be submitted for each membership year (September 1 - August 31) with updated information for consideration.

The JCC’s goal is to allocate limited scholarship funds to as many as possible of those truly in need. Therefore, should you receive financial assistance, and your financial situation improves during the year, please let us know so that another family can be helped. We hope that as a result of this process you will be able to take advantage of everything the JCC has to offer and to make the JCC your home away from home.
