According to Statistics Canada, in 2011 “half of all Indigenous women aged 25 to 64 had a degree, diploma or certificate, compared with 65 per cent of their non-Indigenous counterparts.” *

PAFNW is committed to the holistic success of Indigenous women. We want to support women to thrive culturally as well as financially. So, we have set up a scholarship fund to sponsor Indigenous womens’ post secondary education. We are very excited to fundraise and then offer an awards ceremony next spring. From now until March 31, 2018, we’ll be collecting donations through our Pay Pal account which is linked below. Please include your contact information so we can stay in touch about how much we collect and who the amazing recipients of your generosity are.
