The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) is an international women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service locally, across the United States, and beyond. Our local club raises money and supports many organizations locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally.
The General Federation of Women's Clubs, 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. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., GFWC has a long history of philanthropy, social and political advocacy, and community leadership.
GFWC supports thousands of organizations through service projects and fund raising. Together we can make a big difference. No matter what your volunteer passions are, chances are good that we work with a similar project in our own community.
In all 50 States and more than a dozen countries, our members work locally to create global change. GFWC club women are mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, doctors, teachers, and community leaders who are dedicated to enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
From our historic headquarters in Washington, D.C., GFWC leaders and staff offer support and guidance to more than 100,000 members and more than 4,000 clubs, who collaborate on projects that touch lives in their own hometown and around the globe.
GFWC is distinguished from other service organizations by the breadth of our outreach. Our programs span all areas of the lives of our members, their families, and communities: arts, conservation, education, home life, public affairs, and international affairs.
The Club is dedicated to serving and improving the quality of life in the Four Corners Community through volunteer service. In the first year, we were honored with 4 recognition awards on a State level - and we're not stopping there. We support many organizations locally, statewide, and internationally.
