The GFWC Annual Report is a snapshot in time, showcasing clubwomen’s commitment to the Federation’s mission. From partner and non-partner related community service projects that totaled nearly 100,000 in number, to the generous contribution of $20,000 for the GFWC Success For Survivors Scholarship, clubwomen proved in 2013-2014 that they are change agents in their individual communities, and on a national and global scale.
GFWC members and clubs once again made a demonstrable difference in their communities and around the world in 2013-2014. Through generous hours and generous contributions, GFWC’s commitment to making a difference improved lives and provided hope for countless individuals. Of course, the work is not done and GFWC clubwomen look forward to the next challenge, the next project, and the next chance to show our organization remains committed to Living the Volunteer Spirit.
