In 1920, when GFWC adopted a resolution establishing a permanent headquarters, they were looking for a space that would “be commensurate with the dignity, size and influence of the organization.” In 1922 they found such a place that would secure our presence in our nation’s capital. For the past decades, the generosity of our Regions, state federations, clubs, and individual members has allowed us to create a home at 1734 N Street, NW in Washington, D.C. that exemplifies precisely that proclamation. It is imperative that we continue to preserve this national historic landmark that has served us so well through the test of time.
Your generous Gifts to Headquarters will be designated for the repair and refurbishment of our home’s infrastructure. Targeted areas of immediate need are the magnificent main staircase and the original wood flooring and wall panels, which after nearly a century have come to show wear and tear. We ask you to consider making a donation this year. Visit the GFWC Convention event page on GFWC.org to download a donation form or contact us at 1-800-443-GFWC (4392).
Gifts to Headquarters donations will be acknowledged at the GFWC Annual Convention. Donations received prior to May before each Convention will be acknowledged in the Convention Program.
