Funding CriteriaHome > About Us > Funding Criteria
- Children dealing with physical and mental illnesses under the age of 18 whose families are not economically able meet the needs that the illness has created.
- This would include children of social assistance recipients, low income families and large families for whom the needs of a sick child can cause a financial burden.
- Financial assistance is limited to a one-time contribution, although additional help may be provided in unique circumstances where warranted and approved by a committee of health care professionals reporting to the Trust Fund.
- Financial grants do not require re-payment and are true gifts to the families in need.
- Applications for funding must be submitted by a social worker that has done a consultation assessment with the family and recommends funding be granted.
- Financial contributions are limited to $1,500 per gift.
- Requests are generally for a one time only “gift”. A variance of this policy will be considered when recommended by the funding committee.
- Contributions will not be categorized. Any and all needs of the family or the child can be addressed by the Trust. This would include but not be limited to: educational equipment, health supplies, travel costs, accommodations, specialized treatments, and any other such activity as deemed necessary by the Funding Committee.
- The Trust will not provide funds for items covered under Canada’s universal Medicare System (MCP).
- The name of children, parents and/or guardians will not be used for the purposes of promotion without the express permission of the persons involved.
