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.
With nearly 100,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state, the District of Columbia, and more than a dozen countries, the General Federation of Women's Clubs members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement and work toward world peace and understanding.
GFWC’s impact has been felt throughout communities across the United States and the globe, and on April 24, 2015, their designated Federation Day, GFWC celebrated its 125th anniversary.
GFWC has clubs and clubwomen in all 50 states and internationally who are committed to national causes and the improvement of their local communities. As exemplified by their motto "Living the Volunteer Spirit," GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on, tangible projects that provide immediate impact. GFWC began a partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during the 2015 GFWC Annual Convention in Memphis, Tenneesee.
With a grassroots approach that often links locally but impacts globally, GFWC remains committed to serving as a force for global good, as it has since its formation 127 years ago.
