SMALL CLUB-BIG GIVING
In 2013, the GFWC Woman’s Club of Spokane gave $22530.00 in reduced rate rentals to local non-profits and community minded organizations working in areas that coordinated with GFWC Community Service Projects and Signature projects, and assorted religious organizations needing a facility for regular services or large special occasion celebrations. Another $850 of club member in-kind and cash donations were provided to various local causes from Ronald McDonald House to Hope House. The club also spent $24000.00 maintaining our historic clubhouse so the public can continue to have access to this 100-year-old building for all sorts of community needs from Wednesday night contra dance to family weddings. We are proud of our continuous service to Spokane since 1907.
