 Give a Little Piece of Your Heart

 Sharing heart with hands

The FAWCO Foundation is the philanthropic heart of FAWCO.  The Foundation's programs are dependent on donations from individuals, FAWCO Member Clubs and sponsors.  Over the years, through the generous donations of our supporters, the FAWCO Foundation has been able to lend a helping hand to a number of organizations worldwide in support of women and girls.    

We are truly grateful for the support of all our donors...we thank you one and all!         Heart
