Soref JCC Scholarship Funds
The JCC Scholarship Program was initiated to help those in financial need who are unable to pay established fees. This past year the Soref JCC provided over $500,000 to families in need so their children could attend our preschool, afterschool, or summer camp programs. Since our inception, we have dispersed over $5.0 million in scholarship assistance to thousands of Broward County children.
It is the JCC's intention that no one be denied program services because of the inability to pay the full fee. To help the Center continue to serve those in need, the JCC counts on donations from its many friends. YOU CAN HELP!
Make a tax deductible donation to the JCC Scholarship Fund and know you have enabled others to participate in the Center's valuable program activities. Please make all donations payable to the JCC and indicate SCHOLARSHIP on your payment.
A number of JCC families have set up Special Funds. The interest from these funds benefits the Scholarship Program. Your contribution to one of these funds will say that you care, and will help the JCC reach out to even more people. An acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to the family.
