In 1956 Gilmore Park United Church (Richmond, BC) began as a group of young families (9 adults and 15 children) who came together to worship and raise their children in the Christian faith. In 2019 Gilmore Park United Church established the Gilmore Park United Church Bursary Fund with the Foundation in order to support Christian education for adults, or youth, or children who are members of a United Church community of faith or related organization.
Awards of up to $2,000 will be provided from this fund.
Grants from this fund are available to individuals of any age, who may be lay persons or ordered ministry, who are members of a United Church community of faith or related organization to assist with the costs of a Christian education program. Grants must be used to defray the costs of the education and may not be used for capital expenditures.
