Development Grant (DG)s
Club participation is vital to the Development Grant Program and process; DG proposals reflect the issues and concerns of particular importance to FAWCO member clubs. The FAWCO Foundation encourages clubs to submit up to two DG proposals each year. The recipient in each grant category is determined by vote of FAWCO member clubs. The strength of this program lies in the access to projects known personally by FAWCO members, and many times supported directly by a Member Club. The FAWCO Foundation Development Grant Fund program has awarded $326,000 to 100 charitable projects through 2013. Projects are located in over 30 countries worldwide and 38% of our projects are located in Africa! To learn all about our Development Grants Program, please see our Development Grants page. If you have a question about submitting nominations, please contact The Foundation Development Grant Administrator.
Since 1972, FAWCO has given out $800,000 in academic awards to members and their children. Since 2007, awards have been available for undergraduate and graduate studies in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities for $3500-5,000 each. The Dual Cultural Award of $1,500 will enable a bi-cultural high school student to become better acquainted with his or her American heritage. The FAWCO and FAUSA member awards are open to members in their quest for knowledge and self-improvement. The university degree program of $5000 is for a member in undergraduate or graduate studies. The Skills Enrichment award of $3000 is to acquire new skills or enhance existing ones. To learn all about Education Awards, and to see this year's available awards, you can see our Education Awards page. If you have a question about submitting applications, please contact The Foundation Awards Program Administrator.
The Target Project
FAWCO and The FAWCO Foundation announced a four-year program to bring a critical global issue to the attention of FAWCO Clubs, their members and to the world. The FAWCO Target Program chosen was water and the project was the Tabitha Project in Cambodia. $162,000 was raised when the project ended early 2013.
The next Target Project will focus on Womens Rights and applications will be sent out in the fall of 2013 with the final project announced at the FAWCO conference in March 2014
