GFWC Women's Club of South County

 
The GFWC Women's Club of South County, a local civic organization, seeks to bring women of all backgrounds for philanthropic activities and community service.  Our goal is to provide community support through volunteerism, provision of grants to local non-profit agencies, and educational scholarships to women in need.

The Women's Club of South County has been a member of the national GFWC since 1962.

The Women's Club of South County has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars which we have matched with thousands of volunteer hours.
