“CFUW Saanich Peninsula is committed to enhancing our communities through supporting lifelong learning for members and women, locally and worldwide, through the power of women working together”.
Membership is open to all women who support the purposes of our Club, and is no longer limited to university graduates. Our membership of approximately 60 women includes graduates of universities worldwide as well as women who have been or are involved in a variety of other pursuits that may not have involved the completion of an university program. We believe in diversity and the power of women working together.
The membership year runs May 1 – April 30. Dues support the operation of the club and CFUW Saanich Education Trust Fund, as well as the CFUW National and the GWI – Graduate Women International.
Club members meet monthly; usually on the fourth Tuesday evening of the month. Guest speakers reflect a wide range of interests. See the Program page for details.
As a member of CFUW Saanich Peninsula you will experience…
You will feel proud to belong to an organization that collaboratively develops policy to speak with a common voice in support of rights and opportunities, especially access to education for women and children. Advocacy can occur at the individual, Club, National and International levels. You will find others to inspire your personal involvement.
We are women from varied educational, work and interest areas so you will find members to inspire and support your endeavours through Interest Groups, Monthly Meetings, committees, special projects and other venues. We also have a monthly newsletter.
We value education and lifelong learning and create opportunities for continuing education. Every year we provide at least seven or more scholarships and bursaries totaling at least $6,000 to women attending the University of Victoria and Camosun College and other post-secondary institutions.
