GFWC Women's Club of South County
What We Do
Enrich the Lives
Our volunteer initiatives include such hands-on activities as
delivering books through a "Rolling Library" to seniors who are unable to visit their local libraries and
reading to young children enrolled in the CANE Day Care Center.
An annual Book & Author Luncheon is our major fundraiser where we bring together acclaimed and award-winning authors and book lovers. Other fundraisers have ranged from Zumba and Line-dancing to a little black dress event. These events raise funds for grants for nonprofit groups in South County and for scholarships for women in need.
Our annual "Spirit of Giving" essay contest helps middle-school students learn the joys and benefits of charitable giving.
We award grants to nonprofit organizations whose work enhances South County community life in at least one of our four focus areas:
Arts, Conservation, Education, and Social services.
