Financial Assistance Is Available
Like other communities, Dranesville Small District 1A residents sometimes find they are in need of financial assistance in order to attend MCC-sponsored programs and activities. We want to facilitate participation for everyone! When registering for a class or purchasing tickets to an Alden Theatre performance, you can request to receive a subsidy by writing to: programs@mcleancenter.org.  For purposes of public accountability, we will ask that you sign an affidavit to document your stated need.  Always keep in mind that financial assistance is available to help you be a part of our fantastic programs, so don’t hesitate to inquire.
