We strive to make our programs accessible to the broadest community.

When you participate in JCCSF programs, you become part of a community rooted in Jewish values and San Francisco culture. We believe it’s important to make quality education programs accessible to anyone who would like to participate. Economic diversity is crucial to fostering a healthy school environment and enhances the students’ learning experience. Our financial assistance program allows us to include families from a wide range of economic circumstances. We award a range of 5% to 70% of financial aid to 95% of families who apply, and every effort is made to provide aid to the maximum number of families that have financial hardship so that their children can join and experience different programs at the JCCSF. Financial assistance is also available for adults (learn more below).

Summer Camp & Preschool

The administration of financial aid is managed by an independent grant and aid assessment company, FACTS, for our Summer Camp and Preschool programs.

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment is an industry leader and contracted by JCCs nationwide to help maintain objectivity and confidentiality. Applicants will only need to provide documentation once a year, can apply online and have access to online help and dynamic web chat. There will be a non-refundable $40 administrative fee required by FACTS.

Please complete the online application and submit all required documentation by the dates below. Applications received after the deadline will be considered only if funds remain available.
