The Lucy Titunik Fund
The Lucy Titunik Fund was set up to assist astrologers who are in need of financial help to pay medical bills. Lucy Titunik was a long-time member of NCGR who became ill; the fund was created to help her with medical expenses. Out of this, a standing-fund was created for health and welfare. This fund was established knowing that many astrologers lack sufficient health insurance, and as a result find themselves in hardship during already stressful times. NCGR has two different Titunik Funds. Titunik Fund I is for any astrologer. Titunik II is only for professional astrologers.
Information on the application process will be forthcoming.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation earmarked for NCGR’s Lucy Titunik Fund, you can do so by writing a check made out to “NCGR, Inc”.
