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

GFWC grants are available to clubs to assist with recruitment efforts and to districts to assist with club building efforts. Funds are designated each GFWC fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30 to help underwrite membership recruiting and rebuilding in your community. GFWC offers $50 for club member recruitment programs and $100 for district new club building programs.

To apply for a club membership grant, please visit, email, or contact 202-347-3168, to receive an application.

You must return the application form to GFWC Headquarters at least 45 days prior to your event. While a GFWC club or district may submit grant applications for separate events, GFWC will award a maximum of one grant per club/district per GFWC fiscal year.

Focus On Literacy Club Grants

Literacy club grants of up to $200 are available to GFWC clubs, and funds may be used for purchasing books for tutors to use, providing books to children, and/or a variety of other literacy needs. Refer to the application for a number of other suggestions, available at
