Cheques should be made out to:  CFUW Charitable Trust 

An official income tax receipt will be issued by  CFUW Charitable Trust to those contributing at or greater than the $20 level.

*The École Polytechnique Commemorative Award has been granted at $7,000 annually for several years, and in 2011, for the first time, CFUW was able to give two awards totaling $12,000 – one at $7,000 and one at $5,000. This award is considered one of the most prestigious offered by CFUW, and the Fellowship Committee reports that the applications for it are numerous and of very high quality. 

This annual collection of funds acts as a living memorial to the victims of the massacre and helps to ensure that the two awards will continue to be funded in the years ahead.
