ABOUT US 

Who We Are

CFUW Stratford currently has more than 100 members. We get together to learn, socialize, and advocate.

CFUW Stratford was founded in 1954 with an initial group of 30 women. A few of the original charter members are still active today. They embody more than half a century of remarkable dedication to both the club and the community.

CFUW Stratford is a non-profit organization of area women working to promote lifelong education, to improve the status of women and girls, and to enable women to effect positive change for a peaceful, sustainable future.

What We Do

Monthly Meetings

Meetings are held monthly September to May, and include guest speaker presentations. Topics are diverse, current, educational and thought-provoking.

Interest Groups

Groups get together, usually monthly, for socializing and learning – from book clubs and cultural outings to lunch and dinner groups and games.

Scholarships

We fundraise every year to provide annual scholarships to both secondary students and mature students, going on to post-secondary education.

Advocacy

All members have the opportunity to join the Advocacy Committee. We use our experience, enthusiasm and expertise to bring about positive change.
