General Federation of Women's Clubs and Plan USA

The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) and Plan USA have been partners for over 30 years.

  • GFWC clubs can sponsor a child from their choice of 48 countries around the world. A club can communicate with its sponsored child through letters and small gifts, creating an ongoing relationship in which the whole club can be involved.
  • Clubs can support the Global Women’s Fund, a program that helps women in developing nations lift themselves out of poverty through vocational training and micro-finance programs.
  • Clubs can support Plan’s Because I Am a Girl campaign, which assists in the fight against gender inequality and promote girls’ rights and lifts millions of girls out of poverty.
  • Brochures and materials on each of these programs are available at no cost to clubs:

Plan USA will send a certificate of appreciation to each GFWC club that supports the Global Women’s Fund or the Because I Am A Girl campaign with a minimum donation of $100 (cumulative) each year for donations received July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011, and July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012.

A special award will be provided to one state federation in each membership category to recognize fundraising achievements during the 2010-2012 Administration (July 1, 2010 to May 15, 2012; note that a minimum of $10,000 must be donated by a state and/or its clubs to be considered for this award). These awards are presented at the final GFWC Annual International Convention during the 2010-2012 Administration (June 2012).

Plan USA will track all donations, which must be clearly identified as being from a GFWC club or GFWC state federation.
