Nearly 80,000 members of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) are united in their dedication to volunteer community service. While diverse in age, interests, and experiences, all clubwomen are united by a desire to create positive change in their communities.
With roots in local communities and branches around the world, GFWC members enjoy opportunities to learn from and share with one another at district, State, Region, and international meetings, seminars, and conventions. Operating under the broad umbrella of community service, GFWC clubs are able to assess the needs of their individual communities, consider the abilities and interests of their members, and focus their projects and programs in areas that satisfy the needs of both. Program guidelines, materials, and resources provided by GFWC and State Federations assist clubs in serving the needs of their communities effectively and efficiently.
