The Texas Federation of Republican Women (TFRW) is a volunteer army unmatched by any other women's organization. TFRW makes it possible for women to influence how local, state, and federal government manages such critical issues as health, crime, education, taxes and financial security.
The TFRW's long-standing goals of education, training, participation in government, electing Republicans and encouraging Republican women to run for office has helped create a powerful organization that is over 10,000 members strong with 164 Local Clubs across the state of Texas.
Please make plans now to attend this year's Champion of Freedom Presentation honoring Land Commissioner George P. Bush! This complimentary luncheon event will be held in Austin on July 23 (click here to download the flyer). Reservations are required by July 17 (email TFRW Community Engagement Chair Tina Gibson; details on the flyer).
We are seeking table sponsorships ($1000 for a table of ten) to help offset expenses. Please download the flyer for more details.

As we near the summer months, most clubs slow down a bit and enjoy a more relaxed pace. But there are still many exciting events happening in TFRW! We are right in the middle of Award deadlines! I hope all clubs are monitoring their club progress and helping their Award Chairmen to submit Award applications. Information and deadlines may be found on the TFRW website.
We have very exciting news regarding the Borah Van Dormolen Memorial Scholarship. We are now finalizing plans for this Scholarship to be given at our TFRW Convention in November. This will be a $10,000 scholarship given to a young woman with tremendous leadership and academic skills who has been accepted and is attending a college or University. The details and application form will be coming soon, with a deadline to apply of September 30, 2015. Please watch for that application form to be in our July President's Newsletter.
The BVD Memorial Scholarship will be privately funded by the family. However, donations to our TFRW scholarship program are always welcome and they will continue to be a part of our TFRW Awards program. Contributions into these scholarship programs will continue to earn points which count on the John Goodwin Tower Award.
