In 1967, FAWCO established a foundation to carry on its long tradition of donating to relief organizations, as well as providing educational support to members and their families. The Foundation’s sole purpose is to put into action FAWCO’s stated interest in the global community by specifically aiding charitable, scientific and educational programs and supporting the rights of women and children throughout the world. For over 40 years, The Foundation has stayed true to this purpose.

The FAWCO Foundation is the philanthropic heart of FAWCO. A six-member Board of Directors, each a member of a FAWCO Member Club elected at FAWCO conferences, oversees the philanthropic efforts and endeavors of FAWCO.
