What We Do
The Aging Assistance Granting Group makes need-based grants to individuals.
How To Apply
Elderly PYM members in financial need may apply to the Aging Assistance Granting Group for grants to assist with their basic needs or to make it possible to live in retirement facilities, or to remain in their own homes. They are encouraged to apply as soon as a need is known, by contacting PYM’s Aging Support Coordinator. Applications may also be made on their behalf by family members, their Meeting’s Care Committee, or their retirement facility. These grants to individuals are kept confidential.
‘Pocket money’ grants are also made to residents of PYM Friends retirement facilities who otherwise would have no spending money.
Deadline: March 1 and September 1; but, apply when assistance is needed – urgent grants can be considered outside of the regular schedule.
Application: download and follow the Aging Assistance Application Guidelines [PDF], or contact the Aging Support Coordinator to obtain the application guidelines. Most applicants will also need a copy of the Application Form [PDF] and Financial Form [PDF] and you should review the guidelines for information on what forms are needed.
