About Our Auction
The CFUW Charitiable Trust has supported graduate study, literacy and creative arts through awards and fellowships since its founding in 1919.
Each year we assist women university graduates, the future of our country, to further their post-secondary education. The Trust raises money to support annual Fellowships, Awards and Grants for Canadian women doing advanced graduate study and research in science, math, engineering, home economics, education, visual arts, music, humanities, and social sciences.
The funds raised from this auction will be used to support these women.
