CUPE 4600 Trans Fund
What is the Trans Fund?
The fund has been created to assist members with costs associated with being Trans. The funds can be used for a wide variety of reasons, such as buying new clothes, surgery related stuff, travel, survival, name change, binders, makeup, or any other needs...
Who can access it?
The fund is for any Trans member of CUPE 4600. Contract Instructors retain membership in CUPE 4600 for two years after the last class they taught, and Teaching Assistants retain membership for a year after they have last worked as a TA.
How is the fund accessed?
By filling out this form.
Then, three times per year (September 30, January 31, May 31), the fund committee will look at all the applications received and select recipients.
What if it is an emergency?
If you need to access the fund in an emergency, please email
Who oversees this fund?
The fund is administered by a committee made up of CUPE 4600 members. Most of the committee's current members are trans, and efforts will be made to keep it that way. If you are interested in helping out with the committee, please contact us.
The name I use is not the same as my legal name, will this be an issue?
That's not a problem. If you are selected as a recipient of the fund we may need your legal name in order to cut you a cheque, but it will not be shared.
