Annual Fund

Meeting Our Community’s Most Pressing Needs

While we are a membership organization, dues do not cover the full cost of our operations. The majority of dollars raised for the JCC Annual Fund support a generous scholarship program for those who cannot afford to pay the full cost of membership dues and program fees for preschool, afterschool care, health and wellness, camps and senior programs.

A strong Annual Fund helps us assist those who need us the most. It is an easy way to help us meet the everyday needs of the thousands of people we serve. While most donors provide unrestricted support through the JCC Annual Fund, donors may designate a specific JCC program upon request. Some donors have chosen to allocate funds directly to specific areas at the JCC.

Below are some of the programs supported by the Annual Fund.
