Financial Assistance 2020-2021

Temple Aliyah financial assistance is a need based program only, and families must demonstrate true financial need to qualify. All remaining and past due balances will be taken into consideration.

Assistance is granted on a case by case basis and limited by the funding we have available for this purpose. 

Unfortunately, we cannot grant assistance to all who apply for it, as the funds for assistance are limited. 

All information is kept strictly confidential by all parties.



Please fill out the entire application.  Any blank space may delay processing of your application or prevent its processing altogether.  You are also free to attach additional information if you would like.


All ECE applications must be submitted with a copy of pages 1 & 2 of your 2017 & 2018 Federal Tax return and 2019 Tax Return or W-2s.  Failure to provide this information will result in your application remaining incomplete and not considered.

Processing the applications takes time.  You maybe contacted by the Executive Director or Membership Engagement Director asking for clarification or additional information while your application is processed.  You can expect to wait three to four weeks for a final decision.


SCJLL (Religious School) and ECE FAMILIES: Your application for school is not complete until you submit this application.  We cannot hold spots in class without this complete form.

Temple Aliyah is proud of our commitment to offer membership to any family who seeks it, regardless of ability to pay.  We thank those temple members who voluntarily pledge more than the standard membership contribution, for providing the funds for us to do so.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Membership Engagement Director, Alicia Cohen Kraus at


Priority Returning ECE Families (membership & tuition): Friday, April 3
Final Deadline for Renewing Members (membership only): Friday, August 7

Financial Assistance is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis so all applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

Monthly Income (Other)

Financial Information
Tuition Payments (other than Aliyah) that you are making for a dependent child
Other Monthly Expenses

For financial assistance to be granted, Temple Aliyah must be important among your financial priorities.  If you are having trouble with your expenses in general, what other adjustments are you making, or asking to be made, in other aspects of your life? 
A reduced financial package is only considered in circumstances where there is true financial need.  Please describe your reason(s) for requesting assistance.  Has COVID-19 had a significant impact on your financial situation?

Annual Commitment

Please calculate what your annual commitment would be prior to receiving any assistance.  Include a separate line for each program.

If you need assistance determining your membership and/or tuition rates, please contact Alicia Cohen Kraus, Membership Engagement Director,
Your application is not complete without your desired monthly payment.

By clicking below, I hereby certify that the information provided in this application is true and accurate.  I give my permission for the Executive Director to independently verify any or all the information I have provided, with the condition that all information is kept strictly confidential.  I understand that copies of my 2017 & 2018 tax returns (page 1&2) and my 2019 W-2 must accompany this application if I am requesting assistance with ECE tuition.

Because financial assistance decisions are held in strict confidence, we request that you not share the details of your award with other families. Financial assistance is granted on an annual basis, and an award this year does not guarantee a future award. Financial assistance recipients are required to reapply for aid every year.

By submitting this application, I am applying for financial assistance for the 2020-21 year.  I agree to set up automatic payments (on a credit or debit card) to fulfill my financial obligation.
