This is a great opportunity to get support in hosting membership and community engagement events. The FCEF funds projects that include an educational component and that meet at least one of the following themes:

  • Supporting Steelworker families
  • Promoting USW in the community
  • Supporting and engaging young activists
  • Supporting and engaging new activists
