Interested in joining GFWC/CT?

Do you want to make a difference in your community? Do you see a need and would like to be a part of the solution to meet that need? Would you like to meet other like-minded women in your community and make new friends? These are all reasons to join GFWC and why so many women stay members of GFWC! Becoming a GFWC member means joining a local GFWC club, where nearly 100,000 members are actively busy in volunteer community service in clubs around the world for more than 100 years.

If you are not sure where to find a club please email; Kathy @ threesams@sbcglobal.net A club representative in or near the town where you live will get in touch with you to answer any questions to help you connect with a club.

Mission Statement:

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

A little about GFWC Members:

GFWC members are many ages from 12 to 100+.  They are sometimes students, career and professional women, stay-at-home moms or retirees; each individual shares a common commitment to volunteer community service. There are hundreds of reasons to consider membership in a Women’s Club and here are a few. Even a small club makes big differences in the communities. If you would like to get to know more people who you may have seen in the local paper or on social media doing activities to support your community, please inquire and find out when the next meeting will be. Not only do you meet women from your community that you may not know but you also connect with people in your community. The Women’s Club supports many educational programs. If your Town has a Library, chances are that a Women’s Club started it or supports it. Some special projects include awareness programs for Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Veterans and health programs. Women’s Clubs also have committees that deal with Legislation & Public Relations as well as Public Issues.

Our GFWC Headquarters is in Washington DC on 1734 N Street, NW. GFWC Headquarters is not just an office, it’s a home and a National Historic Landmark.

Some notable GFWC Clubwomen include Eleanor Roosevelt; First Lady. Jane Addams; Founder of The Hull House. Julia Ward Howe; Author of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”  Margaret Chase Smith, the first woman to be elected to both Houses of Congress. and Nellie Ross, first female Governor and Director of the United State Mint.
