Changing Womens Lives. One Woman at a Time, Since 1949

The American Business Womens Association was founded September 22, 1949 by Mr. Hilary Bufton Jr. The organization began with 20 members and today has over 60,000 members nationwide. In 1953, in memory of Mr. Buftons son, an educational fund was started. The Stephen Bufton Memorial Education Fund (SBMEF) was designed to further educational opportunities for its members. SBMEF to date has exceeded sixty million dollars in grants and loans to promising young women throughout the nation.

The Sky-Hy Chapter was chartered July 9, 1970. Sky-Hys mission is to raise funds for local scholarships and enhance the professional and personal lives of its members. Sky-Hy has contributed $100,000 to local scholarships; $16,000 to SBMEF; and has awarded $12,000 in grants from national headquarters.
