Annual Fund

To meet today's most pressing needs -- Serving the vulnerable 

A strong Annual Fund helps us assist people of all ages and backgrounds who need us the most. It is the simplest way to help us meet the everyday needs of the thousands of people we serve.

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, after-school care, health and wellness, and camps.

While most donors provide unrestricted support through the JCC Annual Fund, you may designate a specific JCC program upon request. Some donors have chosen to allocate funds directly to fitness, older adults, special needs, camping and cultural arts activities at the JCC.


Here are some of the programs supported by the Annual Fund:

Early Childhood Development Centers
Our Early Childhood Development Centers in Squirrel Hill and South Hills provide enriched, Reggio-inspired early education and child care from infancy to five years old.

James and Rachel Levinson Day Camp
Our traditional day camp held at the JCC's Henry Kaufmann Family Recreation Park in Monroeville, for children ages 3 to grade 5.
