Financial Assistance: The Joysanne Sidimus Fund
The Joysanne Sidimus Fund is a financial assistance program which helps eligible professional artists, full-time students in, and teachers at, recognized post-secondary arts institutions (as determined by the Eligibility Checklist on the Application form) to pay for the fee-for-service treatments offered at The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre by covering 75% of the cost, up to a maximum of $760 for each successful application.
This fund has been named in honour of Joysanne Sidimus, whose vision and passion were instrumental in the creation of the Artists’ Health Alliance.
Please note that this program is funded entirely through generous private donations and funding is subject to availability of funds. This financial assistance is only available as short term support and is not to be relied on for ongoing medical care and treatment.
