GFWC Georgia works locally and internationally to bring about positive change with an unwavering dedication to community improvement through volunteer service. Simply put, we impact lives, through acts large and small.
Impact & Accomplishments
GFWC is distinguished from other service organizations by the breadth of our outreach. Our community service programs span all areas of the lives of our members, their families, and communities: arts, conservation, education, home life, public issues, and international outreach.
GFWC has earned a reputation as a powerful force in the fight against domestic violence. GFWC was recognized on the floor of the United States Senate as “a gem among our midst” by then-Senator Joseph Biden for our work in bringing hope to victims and survivors of domestic violence and abuse, and our early support for the Violence Against Women Act.
Community Service Programs and Special Projects
Our Community Service Programs and Special Projects are structured to enable clubs to harness the vast resources of our membership to address the needs of their individual communities.
GFWC Community Service Programs and Special Projects focus on major issues that affect our communities daily—supporting women’s health, preserving natural resources, promoting literacy and equality, citizen advocacy, and encouraging volunteer service—and fall into the following areas of focus: Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach and Public Issues. GFWC Georgia has also adopted Domestic Violence as their signature project.
