Day School Tuition: Every Jewish child in Milwaukee deserves Jewish experience. All the Milwaukee area schools are committed to working with families to make education affordable. There are scholarships, payment plans, and tuition discounts available. Please contact individual schools for more information. A Jewish education may be more affordable than you think!

Helen Bader Day School Grants: The Coalition for Jewish Learning, the education department of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, distributes $500,000 for tuition assistance to families attending Jewish day schools and high schools. The grants are distributed through a blind process that assesses applications from local families and makes decisions based on need. Families who are interested in applying for grants can do so online in April. Please email or call Tziporah Altman-Shafer at 414-963-2718 for more information.

General Camp Scholarships: The Jewish Community Foundation of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation awards scholarships to young people to attend recognized Jewish summer overnight camps and to attend summer programs in Israel, based on financial needs. Applications are due February 15, 2018, and can be completed online. For more information, email or call Tziporah Altman-Shafer at 414-963-2718.

One Happy Camper Grants: The Milwaukee Jewish Federation and Foundation for Jewish Camp can help your child experience a summer of a lifetime by providing up to $1,000 per student to help make camp more affordable. The need-blind grants are available to first-time campers (the first time going 19 days or more to camp) at Jewish overnight camps. Grants are not available for Jewish day school students. For more information, email or call Anna Goldstein, Federation outreach/teen philanthropy coordinator, at 414-390-5764 who can help you and your first-time overnight camper every step of the way towards a summer of fun.
