About UsContact UsEnrichment ClassesProgramsJewish ValuesFinancial Aid


Dear Parents,

We appreciate your interest in participating at the JCC and appreciate your need for financial assistance. The JCC is entrusted with funds from its members and donors to assure that we do everything possible to meet the needs of our community. In order to equitably and diligently fulfill our responsibilities, we must verify some relatively basic information that will inform our decision-making before making commitments to provide such assistance. We hope you understand our need to collect information from you that will help us determine how best we can assist you.

In order to manage this process well, we are using a confidential third party entity - FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment – who will be assisting us in conducting the need analysis for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. Families applying for financial assistance will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. You can apply online by clicking here or by pasting this web address into your browser: https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/4KJ07. While, the deadline has passed for the 2016-2017 school year, please check back for important dates pertaining to the 2017-2018 school year. During the online application process, you will be prompted to submit the following:

  • Copies of your most recent Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules
  • Copies of your 2014 W-2 forms for both you and your spouse
  • Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF
  • A $30 refundable application fee

The $30 application fee will be refunded to you in one of the following ways:
1- Direct refund - if application is denied or if you do not accept our offer of assistance
2- The award you are offered/accept will include reimbursement of the $30 fee.

All supporting documentation can be uploaded in pdf format online.

Documentation can also be faxed to 866-315-9264 or mailed to the address below. Please be sure to include the applicant ID on all faxed or mailed correspondence.

We are committed to making this process as efficient, effective, confidential and user-friendly as possible. We hope that the use of FACTS will help assure that we meet these goals. If you have questions or concerns about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at 866-441-4637.
