The GFWC Annual Report is a snapshot in time, showcasing clubwomen’s commitment to the Federation’s mission. From partner and non-partner related community service projects that totaled nearly 100,000 in number, to the generous contribution of $20,000 for the GFWC Success For Survivors Scholarship, clubwomen proved in 2014-2016 that they are change agents in their individual communities, and on a national and global scale.
2016 was a year of excitement, energy, and enthusiasm as GFWC continued to empower members to open doors in their communities. Over the past year, donations of both time and money enabled GFWC to improve the lives of countless individuals and communities. Of course, this work is not done, and GFWC clubwomen look forward to starting 2017 with the knowledge that GFWC is unified to our commitment to enhancing the lives of others through service.
