In keeping with CFUW Markham Unionville’s commitment to furthering the education of girls and young women, we have established an Education Fund. At the beginning of the club year, each CFUW member contributes $20. We then do further fundraising with our book sales, gift basket raffles and community events.
For the 2016/17 club year, the Education Fund Raising Committee arranged two theatre nights. Both events were very successful and allowed us to increase our educational support of young women in our community and internationally.
Through the Education Fund we are able to
- Direct $2,000 toward supporting the education of young women in Guatemala
- Award two $1,000 scholarships and three $750 bursaries to local young women in need.
