GFWC Unity in Diversity

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. GFWC’s roots date back to 1868, when a journalist Jan Cunningham Croly was refused entrance to attend an event at an all-male press club honoring British novelist Charles Dickens, and in response, she formed a woman’s club—Sorosis.

Two decades later at a New York City convention, in April 1890, 63 woman’s clubs officially formed the GFWC.

Current CFWC President, Pam Ament has chosen honoring our Military & Veterans and saving the honeybees as her awareness projects. Community service programs include Advocates for Children, Arts & Culture, Civic Engagement & Outreach, Community Impact, Domestic & Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention.
