The majority of scholarships and bursaries provided by our Education Fund support the education of young women locally.
In 2016 we created an ongoing annual award to be given to young women in care or in transition from the care of York Region’s Children’s Aid Society.
We have established an additional annual award or awards (if funds are available), to be given to one or more at risk or vulnerable young women who are without family connections. The awards are offered through York Region’s 360Kids organization.
We are also involved in donating funds to York University for the Donna Hayden Memorial Education Awards for women. Donna was a past president of CFUW Markham Unionville.
