Home > Upcoming Programs

Tatamagouche Centre offers over 15 programs every year. Our programs are carefully curated and developed to meet the needs and interests of individuals, community organizations, and faith communities while also expressing the values of our Mission and Inclusion Statements.

We work hard to make our programs accessible, while ensuring that the true costs are covered. This is possible through the generosity of individual and organizational donors who have been touched by our work.

When we grant funding towards our programs, we name the true cost of the program in order to allow those who are able to pay this cost. Some will even be able to pay a generous cost to donate a little extra to help support others. Others need a reduced cost supported by grant funding. Some need greater financial support through our bursaries. If you need financial support, we really would like to hear from you as early as possible. We are particularly excited to support folks from traditionally marginalized backgrounds. The names and identities of bursary recipients are confidential. In 2019 we have received some funding for program bursaries from the United Church Foundation:

When available, bursaries for youth and young adults are provided by The James Robertson Memorial Trust Fund, the Wesley C. Smith Fund, the Davey Family Endowment Fund, the Living Spirit Fund, the Brian and Belva Piercy Fund, the Jean Moore Endowment Fund, and the United Church of Canada Foundation’s General Fund at The United Church Foundation.

Where available, bursaries for seniors spirituality program streams were awarded from The Watkins Fund for Innovative Ministries with Senior Adults at The United Church of Canada Foundation.
