The Women’s History and Resource Center welcomes donations from our clubs and past and present members. We ask that you adhere to our mission statement when donating items. This helps us to ensure that the history of GFWC is being preserved to the best of our abilities. Our mission statement is as follows: “The Women’s History and Resource Center collects, preserves, interprets, and promotes the history of the GFWC and women volunteers.”
Any clubs or federations interested in submitting written or documented histories will be added to the WHRC archives. Due to limited space and resources, the WHRC does not actively collect the administrative records and publications of GFWC member clubs. Below are two links that have guidelines for how to prepare club and federation histories.
