One-quarter of all children participating in programs at Leonardo’s Basement receive financial support. Scholarship funds are provided by generous individuals, corporations and foundations.
Scholarships are provided for summer classes at the levels shown above in the “User Type” FAQ, as funds are available. Each student is allowed to take up to four classes at the scholarship rate and an unlimited number of additional classes at the regular fee.
Scholarships are also available during the school year for families participating in any public benefit program (e.g., SNAP, TANF, WIC, MFIP, SSI, Section 8 housing, Medical Assistance) or with family household income less than $45,000. All families requesting scholarship funds must provide evidence of participation in a benefit program or page one of the 2022 IRS Form 1040.
