Complete one form for each individual registration and return to: JCC of Syracuse 5655 Thompson Rd. DeWitt, NY 13214 Fax: 315-449-4539 Full payment must be received with the enrollment form. Register early as some programs have limited space and classes fill up fast. JCC members receive enrollment priority. Automatic registration Auto registration may be made for the same ongoing class next semester. Please indicate this on the registration form and your credit card will be billed at that time. Cancellations, refunds & changes We do not send registration confirmations. We will notify you only if a class is cancelled. The JCC reserves the right to cancel a class due to insufficient registration. In such cases, a full refund or credit will be issued. Transfers from one class to another can only be made with prior JCC approval. Billing Membership JCC membership is a one-year commitment. Annual membership is nonrefundable and payment is due in full upon joining. Or, for your convenience, you may choose an alternate payment option such as monthly automatic payments from your credit/debit card or bank account. Program enrollment Bills for the Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP) and the After School Program will be issued on or about the first of every month. Payment may be made by mail, in person or via phone/fax by credit card. You may also choose monthly automatic payments from your credit/debit card or bank account. After School withdrawals, changes To ensure proper staffing ratios, changes or withdrawals must be made in writing to the After School Program by the 15th of the month (or next business day) prior to the month when the change will occur. If written notification is not received, you are responsible for the original billed amount. Increases in days and times are based on availability. ECDP withdrawals, changes Enrollment in ECDP is a commitment to our 10-month school year which consists of three sessions: September–November, December– February and March–June.

Supporting Your Center 315-445-2360 | www.jccsyr.org The JCC of Syracuse is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your continued financial contributions, gifts, grants and endowments allow us to serve you, your family and the larger community six days per week, year round. Funds raised are critical to daily operations, special programming, future development and improvements, and scholarships and financial aid. End-of-year donation Public support is imperative to the JCC of Syracuse’s survival. The center depends on these donations for a full 7% of its annual budget. Information about making a taxdeductible, end-of-year contribution will be sent out in late fall. Matching gifts Many area companies have matching gift programs, which encourage charitable giving by their employees. Under these programs, companies match gifts—often dollar for dollar or even two dollars to one—that individuals make to nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations. Your gift to the JCC may qualify. Please check with your employer to determine eligibility requirements. Tribute cards To commemorate special occasions, including births, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, marriages, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or to celebrate and honor the memory of a loved one, the JCC welcomes tax-deductible gifts to one of our many endowment or special funds. (See the tributes on page 33.) The JCC will send an acknowledgement card to the individual (or next of kin) in whose name the contribution is made. Tribute cards recognize someone special and help the JCC. For more information, contact Erin Hart at 315-445-2040, ext. 112. Volunteer An agency such as the JCC is dependent on the enthusiasm and willingness of community members who volunteer their time and talents. Volunteers are invaluable in bringing vital perspective, experience, community and manpower to complement those of our staff members. Senior Adult Dining Program Our Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program (see page 25) offers seniors a hot, nutritious kosher meal five days a week at a very affordable price. It’s our way of “giving back” to local seniors who form the foundation of our community. You can help keep this valuable program going by making a contribution or becoming a sponsor of our monthly senior newsletter. For more information, contact Erin Hart at 315-445-2040, ext. 112. Jewish Federation of CNY The JCC of Syracuse is a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Central New York. The JCC receives funding from the Federation and works in close partnership with it to provide the Jewish community with essential programs and services. JCC families and members can help by giving generously to the Jewish Federation of CNY campaign.
