Financial Assistance

The Boulder JCC has a need-based scholarship program which you may apply for through the FACTS system. We do our best to meet the needs of all our families, but are often limited both by the amount of money raised for scholarships and by the number of families seeking assistancePlease note that this application is due by March 31, 2017. Applications received after the March 31, 2017 deadline will be considered on a rolling basis, but awards will be limited based on if there are any remaining funds available in the scholarship program.

The JCC receives a number of grants and donations to provide the resources for our need-based scholarship fund. The majority of funds come from our Reflections Gala Fundraiser each year, so please join us and donate. The JCC Scholarship Fund is open to all families regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or background. Separately, JEWISHcolorado has a scholarship fund specifically for families that identify as Jewish and are in need. The application for both of these funds is through the same FACTS system. Therefore, when you are filling out your FACTS information, you will be asked whether your family identifies as Jewish. It is important to note that the JCC Scholarship Committee does not use this information when making scholarship determinations as we abide by our nondiscrimination policy.

If you have scholarship questions, please contact Susie Valdez.  

**Please note, there are no scholarships available for infants at this time.
