Christensen/Dryburgh Memorial Educational and Travel Fund…

This new and revised Application Form for the Christensen/Dryburgh Memorial Educational and Travel Fund, is shorter and simpler. While we’ve cut out some of the other documents that you had to send with the old form, we do need this one for our records, as an expense form.

We advise you to use this form when you’re seeking financial assistance for a church related, educational gathering, to offset the cost.
All women in the Communities of Faith of the Chinook Winds and Northern Spirit Regions, who are not employed by the church, are eligible to apply, even if they are not members of the Women of The United Church of Canada organization.

The Fund will assist with one third of the total cost of your event, if it is held in our province. However, you will need to apply a month prior to the event, and you will receive the cheque after your return.

Once you have completed the Application Form, please send it to:
Adrine Giles, 413 14 Street E, Drumheller AB T0J 0Y5.

We encourage you to apply. This fund is here to assist you.
