What do we do?
Each year the Trust provides financial awards to local female students who are furthering their education at university or college. For the Indigenous Student and CAS awards, both young women and young men are eligible. These awards are funded by CFUW members’ donations, Club fundraising efforts, and the generosity of corporate and other donors. The Trust also administers other awards through endowments.
The Trust administers the funds, advertises the awards, selects the candidates, and liaises with the appropriate educational institutions.
In the spring of 2020, the Trust, on behalf of CFUW Aurora/Newmarket, awarded $30,500 of financial assistance to deserving students.
We thank our donors for helping us to continue our legacy of giving.
