Financial Assistance – Needham Junior Football and Cheer (NJF&C) is committed to helping build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. Included in this commitment is the belief that everyone should be able to participate in the program, regardless of their financial circumstances. Thanks to the generosity of our numerous volunteers and proceeds from our raffle fundraiser, we are able to grant financial assistance to a limited number of athletes.
