Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC)
GFWC is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. GFWC members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, and encourage civic involvement. Clubs have the freedom to shape programs and projects that suit their own communities and interests, while benefitting from the expertise and support at district, state, regional and national levels. Whether aiming for the passage of a Congressional bill to prevent violence against women or mentoring at-risk children at a local elementary school, we are proactive, determined, visionary volunteers with a national voice and a local passion.
