Hillcrest Foundation has once again provided The J with $20,000 in grant funding. The money will increase accessibility to both the Cohn Early Childhood Learning Center and various day camps through the use of need-based scholarships for families of low to middle income. This funding will directly support Birmingham-area children (age six months through early adolescence) and their parents.
Fee reductions will be offered on a sliding scale, and qualifying recipients must demonstrate that the regular cost of participation in the Cohn ECLC or LJCC Camps is prohibitive. We look forward to offering dozens of scholarships through this partnership with Hillcrest Foundation, and we greatly appreciate their commitment to helping ensure high-quality and reliable childcare for all.
Hillcrest awarded a similar $20,000 grant to The J in 2022.
