Giving Circles are a form of philanthropy consisting of groups of individuals who pool their funds and other resources to donate to their communities. CFUW St. Catharines is committed to promoting the well-being of women and children in the Niagara Region and in our global community. Our members contribute money, goods, services, time and effort to support socially beneficial causes. Our circle serves as a form of shared giving in the context of community economic development and other social ventures.

Our members believe that when a community can view itself as being resource rich, we are in a better position to address community problems.
