The aim of the Funeral Assistance Program is to provide assistance to Gumala Members and their families attending funerals and / or covering the reasonable costs associated with a funeral. The program will assist in alleviating the financial burden of the costs associated with funeral arrangements, such as travel, accommodation, and headstones for the deceased. The program aims to ensure that the cultural significance of attendance at funerals is addressed.
It is not necessary for the deceased person to have been a Gumala Member in order for Members to access these funds. However, confirmation of the impending funeral / proof of death must be forwarded to GAC with any applications for assistance, in order for applications to be processed.
