One-third of all children participating in programs at Leonardo’s Basement receive scholarships based upon household income. Scholarship funds are provided by generous individuals, corporations and foundations. **Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Leonardo’s Basement. 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 available during the school year for families eligible for the reduced fee or free lunch program or with family income less than $45,000. All families requesting scholarship funds must provide income verification. Families must provide a copy of the reduced fee lunch program eligibility letter from your school district or page one of your 2019 IRS Form 1040. We must receive this information one week after registering or the student will lose their place in the class.
