GFWC Florida Awards Scholarships to Women
GFWC Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs has a long history in support of education. Thanks to the generous donations from the 7,500 clubwomen across the state, GFWC Florida awards scholarships each year to women needing assistance for education to achieve their goals of becoming self-sufficient through gainful employment. GFWC Florida recently awarded two scholarships.
GFWC Florida Honors President’s Project
Clubs Show Love, Respect and Kindness for All
In the past twelve months, GFWC Florida clubwomen have participated in 1,021 Love, Respect and Kindness projects, volunteered over 60,000 hours and donated over $1.1 million in cash and in-kind donations.
Starting in May 2020, clubs across Florida have embraced President Dianne Forester’s President’s Project, showering their communities with Love, Respect and Kindness! Each blue umbrella on our Project Map tells a story of service projects completed in communities across our state. Special needs classrooms have received supplies, funding, and encouraging gifts for teachers and staff. Health care workers and first responders have received notes of encouragement and energizing meals. Front line wildlife rescue teams have received supplies to continue to help our winged and furry friends. Donations have flooded the state to support the veterans. On December 3, 2020 and April 7, 2021, clubs participated in statewide Days of Service in honor of International Persons with Disabilities Day and World Health Day.
GFWC Florida clubwomen love to Live the Volunteer Spirit together.
