Why should I give to GFWC?
Your contributions help GFWC fund club grants and awards, maintain GFWC Headquarters as a National Historic Landmark, support the GFWC Women’s History and Resource Center, and meet community needs in times of disaster.
What opportunities do I have for giving?
Your donation may be tax deductible (according to current tax laws), and there are a number of funds, plans, and programs designed to maximize your commitment to assisting GFWC and its members in meeting the mission of enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

- Disaster and Relief Funds: GFWC coordinates specific relief funds that accept donations, which are donated back to state federations, partner organizations, or to direct relief organizations as needed.
- Endowment Fund: Contributions to this fund are permanently restricted, although unrestricted income from this fund is used to support programs, advocacy and outreach efforts, and overall membership development opportunities.
