Since its founding more than 100 years ago, the
General Federation of Women’s Clubs has been a unifying force, bringing
together local women’s clubs from across the country and around the world to
learn with and from each other.
Over a Century of Accomplishment:
Reflecting the changing status of women in society,
GFWC members enlarged their focus from self-improvement to the “larger aims” of
community service and involvement, nationally and internationally. Through
their volunteer service, GFWC members develop leadership skills, exchange ideas
and form lifelong friendships. Club projects and programs address a wide range
of issues and vary in nature.
