Cora J. Pope Trust Senior Grant Fund

The Cora J. Pope Trust Senior Grant Fund was established as a means to respect the vision and generosity of Cora J. Pope who sustained an active ministry for women through her home and endowment for 75 years so that residents could live with dignity and in comfort. The Fund operates as a not-for-profit under the Presbyterian Church (USA) with the Cora J. Pope Trust Board of Directors and the Synod of Lincoln Trails serving as the Trustees.
Applicants may apply for grants as individuals/couples up to $2,500 per calendar year for: 
  • Support to live independently at home, including but not limited to home repair or renovation to accommodate medical supplies or aids for independent living. 
  • Support with moving expenses beyond what is covered by insurance or contracted arrangements, which may include move-in expenses or security deposits. 
  • Support with home based services which may include help with meals, cleaning, shopping, transportation, air conditioning, or other health necessities for living at home.
