Our generous donors make it possible for us to offer cost assistance to eligible schools, programs, and families to ensure no child is turned away because of financial limitations.

Cost assistance qualification is based on the following criteria:

  • Organizations with 40-59% of their student population eligible for the National School Lunch program qualify for half-priced program fees
     
  • Organizations with 60-100% of their student population eligible for the National School Lunch program qualify for waived program fees

If the above criteria is not applicable, cost assistance is available for other circumstances:

  • A nonprofit organization relying on waived admission for educational resources
     
  • Budgetary concerns
     
  • Other reasons for financial hardship
