Through the WBF Family of Endowed Funds, your donation will support women who are changing their lives and the lives of their families.
WBF’S VISION remains as strong today as when it was established, and that is “Valued for empowering women to succeed in non-traditional careers, inspiring positive economic change for women and forever transforming the face of industry in Canada”. WBF’s MISSION is “helping women transform their lives by preparing them for prosperous careers in industries where women have been under-represented such as construction, maintenance and transportation”. These careers are transformation for women and their families. The Fund will help to ensure that lack of money doesn’t get in the way of women wanting to achieve this goal.
