A Cause Close To Us

As a woman-owned company, Blindsgalore is proud to partner with the ABWA to create higher education opportunities for women in order to help them achieve greater success in the business world.

Since its inception in 1953, the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund (SBMEF) has been assisting women in achieving success through higher education. Today the educational fund of the American Business Women's Association (ABWA) is considered one of the most highly respected grant and scholarship programs for women in the country. Over the past 60 years, the fund's Board of Trustees has awarded more than $17 million in scholarships to more than 16,000 women thanks to the generous contributions of ABWA members.

SBMEF assists women who are pursuing advanced educational goals to achieve both business and professional success; to become role models, mentors, and leaders for the future. Selection of scholarship winners in communities across the United States has grown into one of ABWA's favorite and most long-standing traditions.
