The GFWC Bylaws is a comprehensive document that outlines the rules that govern the internal management of our organization. Bylaws are written by the organization’s Bylaws Committee and cover the organizational structure, membership, constituency, dues and finance, officer duties, nominations and elections, conventions, how board and executive committee members are elected, community service programs, committees, amendments, and ethical standards, among others. The latest approved version of the GFWC Bylaws can be downloaded below.

Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
GFWC Lawrence Classics Club
The GFWC Lawrence Classics Club (Kansas) has 19 members, and it’s an incredible mixture: one charter member has been involved since 1997; one member has been part of GFWC since 1960; there are a mother and daughter pair who are 2nd and 3rd generation clubwomen; four members are Boosters; and their youngest member only graduated from college last year. This assorted group shares the same values about volunteerism and puts them into action.
