GFWC Women's Civic League of Cheyenne
GFWC Women’s Civic League of Cheyenne is an organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. Members work to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, promote social fellowship, and work towards world peace and understanding.
Women’s Civic League was organized in 1948 and is dedicated to improving the community of Cheyenne and Laramie County through scholarships, direct grants, and service projects. These projects are initiated by the members or in collaboration with other non-profit organizations, charities, schools, or governmental agencies. Equally important is the development and support of each member as she becomes a valued contributor to our community and club.
We are proud to have granted, financed, or supported the requests of over 250 different organizations and special events in and around Cheyenne as well as helping to improve the quality of life of countless individuals. Over $1 million has been returned to our community in a variety of ways from projects as diverse as conservation projects and city park development, to education scholarships for graduating seniors and non-traditional women students returning to school, to support for the homeless--to name just a very few. Our success is the collective expression of the individual commitment of our members to be active, involved, and supportive of our organizations’s endeavors.
