GFWC Georgia’s mission is to enhance the lives of others in our local communities through volunteer service. GFWC Georgia and its members create global change working on a local level—they select projects and programs by determining the specific needs of the communities in which they live and work every day.
Our State organization is composed of 80 women’s clubs divided into 6 districts throughout the State of Georgia. A woman’s club can be either of general, junior or juniorette status, whose membership provides volunteer service to their community. To date, there are approximately 1,900 members through the State. Every Georgia clubwoman is also a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). GFWC is one of the world’s largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women’s volunteer service organization, headquartered in Washington, D.C. It has a long history of philanthropy, social and political advocacy and community leadership.
By joining a woman’s club in your area, you have the opportunity to work with other women to improve the social, cultural and physical needs in your city or town. In so doing, you will meet and make new friends, gain in knowledge, and become a better citizen of your community.
We guarantee through membership in GFWC Georgia you will grow as a person in leadership and will bring new interests into your home. We believe much more can be accomplished when there are many working together in the same interest and belief than when trying to act as an individual.
