The year 2016 is well on its way; full speed ahead! As we look down the road for the new year, there are some very important member benefit deadlines to keep in mind. Put them on your calendar so they don’t pass you by.
College Scholarship Application Deadline – March 15, 2016
This is one of the most popular member benefits we offer, thanks to the many individuals, camps and lodges, as well as the Society, for having the foresight to provide for this benefit through the Assured Life Association Scholarship Endowment Funds. You will find the scholarship application and guidelines on the scholarship page of our website. The deadline is March 15, 2016.
Summer Camp Grant Application Deadline – May 15, 2016
Another popular benefit among our members is the Summer Camp Grants for Youth. Helping our youth is important to our members….and that makes it important to Assured Life Association! The Society sets aside monies to provide individual Summer Camp Grants for youth with a membership connection – members, children or grandchildren of members – or youth being sponsored by a local camp/lodge. You will find the summer camp grant application on the summer camp grant page of our website. The deadline is May 15, 2016.
Opportunity to Help Kids of Military Families Go to Camp
As important as it is to send our own kids to summer camp, how about helping send the kids of military families to summer camp…enter Operation Purple. One of our national member service campaigns, Operation Purple is a program offered through the National Military Family Association. In the military world the color purple represents all who serve, no matter the branch of military. Operation Purple provides military kids a free week of summer camp where they can connect with kids just like themselves. Please consider donating to this excellent cause. Click here for a donation form. We run this campaign through the end of February, but the National Military Family Association will accept donations any time.
