The FAWCO Foundation


The FAWCO Foundation is the philanthropic arm of FAWCO and works tirelessly to fulfill its purpose to implement and aid in the global community, specifically through charitable, scientific and educational programs; to support the rights of women and children throughout the world and to raise awareness of global concerns and issues. 'The FAWCO Foundation listens to your voice, the voice of the Member Clubs, and supports your projects, programs and passions. The FAWCO Foundation is your foundation.

The FAWCO Foundation Development Grants Program (DGs) has a far reaching effect on the lives of women and children worldwide; from small villages to large cities. Recipients have been divided into five geographical areas - Africa and The Middle East; Asia; Australia and the South Pacific; the Caribbean, Central and South America; and Europe.  FAWCO Member Clubs may nominate two projects or programs in two different DG categories. DGs are projects and programs known by the nominating club and have mainly aided women and children in developing countries. Recipients are chosen by majority vote of the Member Club. Development Grant Application Timeline.  

 The FAWCO Foundation Education Awards Program offers annual awards to Club members and their children to reward and honour academic excellence and achievement. There are generally eight awards available but the Foundation may adjust the program to address the needs of members and their children. The Foundation Awards Program is open to all FAWCO and FAUSA members and their children, regardless of nationality, and regardless of whether or not the affiliated Club has made a contribution to The Foundation’s programs.  The Dual Cultural Award is also available to members' grandchildren and has its own specific nationality requirements.  Education Awards Application Timeline


AWG generally makes a small contribution (around 100 USD)  to the FAWCO Foundation each year.  AWG has been the recipient of numerous Development Grants since the program was established.  I would encourage you to appy for these awards.  If you need help with the application process, you can ask your FAWCO rep.
