GFWC Grants and Other Funding Resources

Grants and other funding resources are available from GFWC and some of our partners for specific programs and projects. Grants vary in amount and in their recommended use. Grant winners typically are required to submit a short evaluation form describing how they used the funds. The best part is that the application forms are quick and easy to complete!

Membership Grants

Funding is now available to help underwrite membership recruiting and rebuilding in your community. GFWC is offering $50 grants for club member recruitment programs four times annually and $100 grants for district and State Federation new club building programs on a rolling basis.

Focus On Literacy Club Grants

Literacy club grants of up to $200 are available to GFWC clubs. Funds may be used for purchasing books for tutors to use, providing books to kids, and a variety of other literacy needs. Funding is provided by Proctor & Gamble Company. See the application for a number of other suggestions for grant funds.

Disaster Relief-Library Replenishment Grant

In order to assist GFWC communities affected by man-made and natural disasters, GFWC established the GFWC Library Replenishment Fund. GFWC clubs have a long history of founding, maintaining, and promoting libraries. Grants will be provided to GFWC clubs to help replenish affected libraries in their communities.

Shot@Life Fundraising Grants

Thanks to the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign, GFWC is pleased to offer fundraising grants, in amounts of up to $200, to help put a stop to preventable childhood diseases globally. These funds, provided by the United Nations Foundation, are to be used to plan local fundraisers for the Shot@Life Campaign. Clubs may use funds to plan their event/fundraiser with a goal of raising more than the original amount awarded.
