The purpose of the Christian Science Nurse Gratitude Fund is to acknowledge and recognize the selfless service of Journal-listed Christian Science nurses by offering financial assistance to those who need it in their retirement years.


To be eligible for a grant from the Gratitude Fund, one must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Listing as a Christian Science nurse in The Christian Science Journal for at least ten (10) years*
  • At least 65 years old
  • Currently a member of The Mother Church, residing in the US
  • A financial need assessed through financial disclosure

* We send invitations to individuals who meet this first requirement. If you have not been invited to apply but believe you meet this requirement, please contact us.

How it Works

Broadly speaking, this is how the grants work:

  • Grants are made for the current year.
  • Grants are paid by direct deposit into your bank account.

Please note:

  • The grant will not pay after the grant recipient’s passing.
  • This program may be terminated at any time and for any reason.
