Financial Assistance 2024 - 2025

HAMAKOM 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 below.  Any unanswered questions may delay the processing of your application or prevent its processing altogether. You are also free to attach additional information if you would like.

All ECC scholarship requests/applications must be submitted with a copy of pages 1 & 2 of your 2021 & 2022 Federal Tax return and 2023 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 may be 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.

JLC (Religious School) and ECC Families: Please complete all ECC and/or JLC Registrations and ECC tuition processes prior to submitting this request for assistance. Your request for assistance cannot be considered without these registrations. 

HAMAKOM is proud of our commitment to offering membership to any family who seeks it, regardless of their ability to pay.  We thank those synagogue members who voluntarily pledge more than the standard membership contribution in order to provide funds for those on financial aid. 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Michael Cantor at
