It’s not just an office, it’s a home.
GFWC Headquarters is a National Historic Landmark located at 1734 N Street, NW in Washington D.C. The building became GFWC’s official headquarters in 1922. The building’s historic style has been maintained through generous contributions from members and friends.
GFWC members, political dignitaries, celebrities, notable professionals, and historians are among the thousands of visitors to have walked Headquarters’ venerable hallways since 1922. If you haven’t yet done so, we encourage you to visit us!
GFWC welcomes both individuals and groups for tours, available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Each tour lasts 1 to 2 hours depending upon the number of visitors. To schedule a visit, please email GFWC@GFWC.org. Walk-ins are accepted; however, GFWC recommends scheduling a visit to ensure the best possible experience. GFWC also welcomes students and researcher visits to the Women’s History and Resource Center.
Melanie Carriker understands GFWC tradition and legacy. Daughter of GFWC Communications and PR Chairman Wendy Carriker, Melanie was inspired to form the GFWC Legacy Woman's Club, which celebrates the dedication of grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, and cousins. The GFWC Legacy Club received its charter at the 2015 GFWC Annual Convention in Memphis.
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.
