Program Access and Assistance
We firmly believe in supporting members of our community and region. and strive to reduce and remove barriers to participating in arts-based programming. That’s why, with every registration, we welcome donations to two different funding programs: the Dawson Creek Arts & Wellness Fund or the DCCS Bursary Fund. The more we support each other, the better our programs will ultimately be.
If you or someone you know would like to participate in any DCCS program, we encourage you to learn more below and apply.
Arts & Wellness Fund
Available for children and youth aged 0 to 24
This fund, administered by the Dawson Creek Arts & Wellness Society, will offset costs for youth to access arts and wellness programming. Each youth is eligible for up to $250 in support per calendar year. Application forms are available around the community or electronically here. To apply, you need a reference who knows the child and their financial need. Funds are dispersed to the service provider.
DCCS Bursary Fund
Available to any DCCS program participant
Our internal bursary fund is to assist members who may not be eligible for support through the Dawson Crek Arts & Wellness Fund. Availability of funds is dependent on donations, and money is earmarked for subsidizing fees for members who may need support. You can apply for full or partial support for your registration fees by writing to the DCCS Board of Directors, or by filling out the form below.
