Tex Tyler Endowment


(Hospital Parking Passes

#14561 Edward W. "Tex" Tyler, who was a Life Member of Calgary Division, passed away on March 30, 2006. 
In his Will he wanted to support/assist our members in getting to and from the Hospitals in Calgary to visit family members
by providing Hospital Parking Passes.  A donation of $3,000.00 has been made for that purpose.


Guidelines & Control

-  For the use of members of Calgary Division, their spouses and widows, to visit family and ex-RCMP members in Hospitals and Long Term Care Centres in Calgary.

-  Visitors are to pay for their parking at the Hospital and Long Term Care Centres and obtain a receipt.

-  Individuals and/or families are to mark on the receipt the name of the person visited, then keep and accumulate their receipts  for up to or in excess of $25.00 before submitting them to the Treasurer for reimbursement.  This is to alleviate mailing in receipts for every visit and then having the Treasurer write numerous cheques for small amounts.

-  Members, their spouses and widows are encouraged to purchase monthly Passes for Hospital or Long Term Care Centres and forward these receipts when patients are known to be obtaining lengthy treatment and/or care.  This is  more economical.

-  All receipts and disbursements will be shown on the Treasurer's Quarterly Report.
