Gifts to Headquarters

 For the past 92 years, the generosity of our Regions, state federations, clubs, and individual members have allowed us to furnish our home at 1734 N Street, NW in Washington, D.C.

As we embark on celebrating 125 years of service, it is vital that we continue to preserve not only this historic landmark, but the contents that fill it. Consider making a donation this year. Gifts to Headquarters donors will be acknowledged at Convention this year, and all donations received by May 19, 2014 will appear in the GFWC Convention Program.
