CFUW Charitable Trust


The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) has supported graduate study, literacy and creative arts through awards and fellowships since its founding in 1919.

In 1921 the 12 clubs of the federation awarded the first CFUW Travelling Fellowship of $1000. In 1967 the CFUW Charitable Trust was established as a separate entity to receive donations and manage the resulting funds to provide for:

  • CFUW Fellowships and Awards
  • A biennial CFUW Creative Arts Award
  • A biennial CFUW Library Award

CFUW clubs, individual club members and non-members support the Trust with their donations and memorial gifts.

The CFUW Charitable Trust is a registered charity (BN 13802 4013 RR0001) and issues charitable receipts for donations $20 and over.
