Community Impact Program Awards 

Awards, Contests and Grants Award Period: January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2025

The Community Impact Program Awards are designed to encourage and recognize the positive effects a club can have on specific needs in their community. 


As GFWC's longest standing project its goal remains the same, to reward clubs for effective community projects that benefit from opportunities for growing club membership, enhancing leadership skills, building relationships with individuals and community groups, and creating public awareness of the club and GFWC.

Community Impact Projects should make a visual, physical or emotional impact at the grassroots level. They are projects that bring awareness of what GFWC volunteering is all about.

Some first steps are:

  1. Selecting the Project and Planning

  2. Designing your own grassroots community impact project

  3. Brainstorming and Research

  4. Outline the project to create a plan of action


Contest Description:  Each Community Impact Program Award Entry Form can feature one project based on community need or the initiative from one of the Special Program Areas and/'or Community Service Programs.  The selected project must be undertaken by a club and accomplished during the award period January 1, 2024 to December 3 1, 2025.


Awards will be based on 

  • Project Development - 25 Points

  • Project Completion - 50 Points 

  • Project Change - 25 Points


This is just a few ideas to get your club to thinking. There will be much more information at Summer Conference and Fall Convention.


Please get your contact information to me as quickly as possible so that additional information can   be forwarded to you. Thank you, looking forward to working with you on this project.

Donna Mick, GFWC CIP Chairman
