About Us


Who We Are

As the Nelson and District Club of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), we are one of 21 clubs involved provincially in CFUW's BC Council and one of 100+ clubs engaged across Canada. We are also an active member of Graduate Women International (GWI).


Our Mission

Our Club's mission is to promote education and life-long learning to women and girls, to encourage the participation of members in their communities to enhance the status of women and girls by awarding scholarships and bursaries in the community.


Our Story

Nelson CFUW was founded in 1967.  There are close to 100 clubs and 9000 members across Canada.  The CFUW and our club is part of the Graduate Women International (GWI) and the GWI is in 77 countries around the world.  

Give the Gift of Learning

"The boost of confidence I got from having total strangers care about me and my education was amazing."

This is how one Selkirk college graduate felt when she received her bursary. You can help another young woman by donating to one of two funds established and supported by women in the Kootenays.

We have three options for you to donate locally to one of our bursary or scholarship programs. Click below to learn more about supporting a young woman's education today.
