The Ruth Northcott Memorial Fund was established in 1970 in memory of Ruth Northcott. The fund helps to finance the annual Ruth Northcott Memorial Lecture and the following education-related purposes:
- The improvement and extension of the publications of the Society
- The improvement and extension of the library and visual aids of the Society for the benefit of the members of the Society and the many publics served by the Society
- The fostering of communication and interchange among the members of the Society, thus enhancing members' skills and abilities
- Assistance in providing accommodation for the Society's education and public outreach undertakings
- Such other purposes as would generally fall within Professor Northcott's wish to further the study of, and appreciation for, astronomy in Canada by all Canadians.
