For information about GFWC please press button below:
The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), one of the world's largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women's volunteer service organizations, was founded in 1890 and chartered by the 56th United States Congress in 1901. GFWC's eight regions hold annual conferences in the fall to share ideas, learn current GFWC information, attend workshops, and conduct important business, including elections. It's the perfect time to enjoy fun, festivities, and Federation friends. The GFWC International President and GFWC President-elect attend each of the eight region conferences.
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
GFWC members, from ages 12 to 102, live in cities, suburbs, and rural communities around the globe. They are working women, stay-at-home moms, retirees, and students, united by a shared commitment to volunteer community service.
Members of GFWC clubs are encouraged to focus their efforts on Community Service Programs and Special Projects in Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention and Advocates for Children.
The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out!
