CFUW Partnerships and Affiliations
In an article published in 2007 by the Stanford School of Business entitled “Creating High-Impact Nonprofits”, it begins with the following statement: “Conventional wisdom says that scaling social innovation starts with strengthening internal management capabilities. This study of 12 high-impact nonprofits, however, shows that real social change happens when organizations go outside their own wall and find creative ways to enlist the help of others.”
Over the years, CFUW has used this observation to build partnerships and affiliations with various organizations in order to advance its own mission and goals. CFUW maintains affiliations at the local, national and international levels. Two important international partnerships for CFUW are Graduate Women International and the International Alliance of Women.
