Financial Support for Families and Young Adults to Attend CYM 2018!

Substantial financial assistance is available to support attendance at Canadian Yearly Meeting (CYM) in Session (August 3-11) in Barrie, Ontario.

  • For families with children (ages 18 and under) and for young adult Friends (ages 19-35), up to $850 is available per person.
  • For adult Friends needing support, up to $450 is available per person.

To Apply for a Financial Assistance Grant:

  1. Approach your Monthly Meeting/Worship Group for financial support with attending CYM.
  2. If the Monthly Meeting/Worship Group cannot provide enough supplementary funds, then apply for a grant from CYM.
  3. Request a minute of support from your Meeting and include this in your application.
    Young Adult Friends are encouraged to contact Cameron Fraser, CYM Secretary, if obtaining a minute of support poses a challenge.
