Apply for Financial Assistance

Here’s everything you need to know as you get ready to apply for financial assistance.

The FACTS Application

Start the process by visiting FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to apply for financial assistance for the 2021 summer and 2021 – 2022 school year. You’ll need to have your 2020 tax return information available before you begin. Applicants only need to provide documentation once per year for the following programs: Summer Camp, Preschools and Class Connection.

If you’re applying for K – 8 camps, please select “JCCSF Camp” as the school. For Preschool camps, please select “JCCSF Diller Preschool Only” or “JCCSF Brotherhood Way Preschool Only” depending on the location of the camp. If you’re applying for both Preschool and Preschool camps, please select “JCCSF Diller Preschool & Camp” or “JCCSF Brotherhood Way Preschool & Camp.”

The Fees

A one-time non-refundable administrative fee of $35 is charged by FACTS for the application process. This fee will only be charged once per school year if you are also applying for financial aid for: Summer Camp, Preschools and Class Connection at the JCCSF. If you already have an account with FACTS through another educational institution and have already paid the administrative fee for the school year, the fee is waived. You need to add the JCCSF program as an additional school choice in your application.
