 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.

Founded on April 24, 1890 

GFWC celebrates it’s 128th birthday today!

About the Federation; Gallery; Information; Greccio Housing; Home Front Cares; Site MapWith over 80,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state, the District of Columbia, and more than a dozen countries, GFWC 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.

Since 1890, GFWC’s impact has been felt throughout communities across the United States and the World.
