The Women’s History and Resource Center welcomes donations from our clubs and past and present members. We ask that you adhere to our mission statement when donating items. This helps us to ensure that the history of GFWC is being preserved to the best of our abilities. Our mission statement is as follows: “The Women’s History and Resource Center collects, preserves, interprets, and promotes the history of the GFWC and women volunteers.”
Due to space restrictions, the WHRC is no longer actively collecting any written or documented histories, administrative records, or publications of GFWC member clubs, states, or districts. If you have any questions on where to house your club’s historic materials, please contact email@example.com. If you are looking to prepare club or federation histories, please refer to the links below:
Make A Gift
Consider giving a monetary gift to the WHRC to preserve and promote GFWC’s important role in women’s history.
Serving as MVR President has been a wonderful experience. I’ve been able to work with members from my own state of Missouri for my first Region Conference and from Iowa for my second Regional Conference. Having been able to get to know our International President, President-elect, and the Presidents from the other 7 Regions has been an enlightening and wonderful experience. I’ve learned so very much from each of them!
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.
