The Century House Association is funded as follows:
Memberships – The CHA charges a nominal annual membership fee to cover on-going expenses like publishing The Clarion. more on memberships
Activity fees – An Activity Group may also collect a fee from its members to offset costs. That fee is set by the members of the group. Any unused funds from these fees are remitted to the CHA.
Grants – The CHA regularly applies for grants such as New Horizon for Seniors. A recent grant allowed us to refurnish the common area of Century House.
Sponsorship – Some CHA activities require sponsorship to ensure that costs are not prohibitive to member participation. The Peer Counselling Program, Slo-Pitch and Dragon Boating are examples. Sponsorship is arranged through the Association.
Fundraisers – The Association does two big fund-raising events each year, a spring Thrift Sale and a fall Craft Sale. All proceeds go directly to the Association Treasurer. Additional events are held to directly benefit the CHA Bursary Program.
Donations – Century House Association, a registered charitable organization, supports the many activity groups, services and extras that enhance participation for members. The Century House Association relies on donations to provide our services to seniors.
