Provincial Travel Fund

Members of Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador Council are able to access financial resources under the Provincial Travel Fund, established from funds In Memoriam and Trust. The Fund consists of three accounts, the MacPherson Trust (1974); The Violet M. Cherrington Trust (1984); and The Madge Sheppard Trust (1988). These funds were all established independently from each other from money donated either in memory of a Guiding member or from GGCNL property sale proceeds.
