We have established a Scholarship Trust to raise funds to assist women students graduating from East York high schools to continue their studies at university. Each year we grant three scholarships to graduating students from East York Collegiate, Leaside High School and Mark Garneau Collegiate. In 2005 we also gave $3000 to the Transitional Year Program at the University of Toronto. Most of our funds come from donations from members, memorial donations and bequests. Tax receipts are issued for all donations of $10 or more. To make a donation please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
