CFUW K-W Charitable Fund
The CFUW K-W Charitable Fund was founded in 1985 to provide a means for CFUW members and the public to recognize and encourage educational excellence. The Fund is a registered charitable organization consisting of 13 endowment funds with a mandate to provide scholarships and awards at the secondary and post-secondary educational level in the K-W area.
As a result of CFUW K-W Club fundraising, mainly the spring used book sale, as well as donations from members, friends and families of club members, the Fund is now over $1.3 million. Investment earnings from these funds provides annual revenue to support over $40,000 in awards, scholarships and bursaries given out to high school students, undergraduate and graduate students in K-W each year.
How can I donate to the Fund to help students in K-W?
The funds that finance these awards depend upon the generosity of CFUW K-W members and the public at large through individual donations and from fundraisers such as the Annual Used Book Sale held each spring.
If you would like more information on how you can support educational excellence by making a donation, memorial or otherwise, or by planning a bequest, please contact CFUW K-W Charitable Fund by emailing Managing Trustee.
