Get Inspired by GFWC women of the past.

General Federation of Women’s Clubs

“Living the Volunteer Spirit”


Membership in GFWC is first and foremost about volunteerism.  In all 50 states and more than a dozen countries, our members work together to create global change. GFWC clubwomen are mothers, wives, daughters, doctors, teachers, and community leaders who are dedicated to enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.


The greatest benefit of membership is being part of a world-wide volunteer movement of women working to better the lives of countless men, women, and children all over the world.  The collective impact of GFWC clubwomen working together to assist those in need demonstrates the true power of Federation.
