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.
Minnie Bell Johnson
Minnie Bell Johnson is described by her fellow clubwomen as the happiest person they know, with a smile that brightens the whole room. Having just celebrated her 100th birthday, she has many reasons to smile. During her time with the Portland Woman’s Club (Oregon), she has served as both the club treasurer and club president. She’s still an active member to this day, voting on issues and club elections, and participating in projects like handing out personal care products to homeless women at the Rose Haven Women and Children’s Day Shelter.
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 provided her a place to connect with like-minded women who shared her passion for community service.
