Scholarships for the Brenner Family Early Learning Center
We have a tremendous need for subsides to support scholarships in our Early Learning Center. We do not turn any child away. Without those scholarships many children will not have the opportunity for a quality early education. Providing scholarships to low-income families is one way the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg (JFGH) supports the community and the cultivation of the younger generation and the next generation of leaders.

Thanks to the Kline Foundation and your generous grant of $20,000, we were able to offer a wonderful early education experience to children in our local community. The grants funds were used between January 2016 and June 2016. The total need for scholarships during that period was $43,871 and our average enrollment during those six months was 95 children. This support allowed us to help families in need and redirect some funding to other worthy programs and community partners.

Thank you for helping us continue to fulfill our mission and serve the community.
The mission of the JFGH is to ensure that the Jewish community of Greater Harrisburg flourishes by serving as its central unifying communal organization, and by strengthening the bonds within our community and with Israel and Jews around the world. The Harrisburg Jewish community is sheltered under the umbrella of JFGH, which provides financial, cultural, and physical support to Jewish community organizations and their constituents throughout the Capital region and internationally. The JFGH and its family of agencies serve nearly 6,000 individuals living in the greater Harrisburg area promoting the quality of Jewish life with respect for the rich diversity of Jewish values.
