GFWC Signature Program Fund
Improve the lives of domestic violence survivors around the country by making an investment in their future with a donation to the GFWC Signature Program: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Fund. Monies from the fund will allow GFWC to award intimate partner survivors with scholarships annually, giving them hope for a better tomorrow.
The GFWC Success for Survivors Scholarship was created through GFWC’s commitment to change the lives of survivors as they reshape their future in a positive way through higher education.
The GFWC Signature Program: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Fund is fully supported by donations from GFWC members, partners, and friends.
