GWAC, an affiliate of the National Bar Association, was founded in 1974 as a network of primarily African American women attorneys dedicated to professional development and community outreach. In 1993, GWAC established the GWAC Foundation, Inc. as its charitable arm. In addition to providing financial support for outreach efforts of GWAC, historically, the Foundation has also provided grants to support broad-based community organizations and activities. The Foundation funds law school book and bar review scholarships, as well as support tutoring programs and volunteer work with senior citizens.
