Your gift to the Albany JCC's Annual Appeal strengthens our community in the most meaningful of ways. Toddlers who learn Shabbat songs through their first school experience, children who make life-long friends at the camp that feels like home, young adults who experience life-changing experiences at JCC Maccabi Games and JCC Cares, older generations who connect through exercise and travel these are the faces of the Albany JCC. Your gift helps us be there for each of them.
We are committed to being there regardless of a family's financial circumstances. It is our goal to ensure that no one is ever turned away from a JCC program because they could not afford to participate.
Each year we award more than $196,000 in scholarship assistance to ensure that all can benefit from this very special place. We are especially proud of Camp Courage - the area's first multidisciplinary summer day camp devoted to combat childhood obesity - at no cost for low income families. Although the vast majority of our recipients are children who come to us for early childhood education, camps and after-school programs, we also provide assistance to adults and seniors for programs that contribute to their overall health well-being.
The Albany JCC is here - thanks to the Annual Appeal and to you.
