WBF Family of Endowed Funds


Creating an endowment fund is a powerful way to help women gain economic freedom.

The Story

Women Building Futures has established the WBF Family of Endowed Funds, the first in the organization’s history.

This new Family of Endowed Funds will support WBF in its mission to create economic freedom for women wishing to explore, pursue and advance in trade careers.

WBF’s Founding President, JudyLynn Archer established the JudyLynn Archer Fund with a personal donation of $100,000, that will directly support students with their tuition and housing costs. 

Longtime WBF partners, North West Refining and Canadian Natural Resources Limited have contributed matching donations of $100,000 each.

Through the WBF Family of Endowed Funds, your donation will support women who are changing their lives and the lives of their families.
