GFWC CELEBRATES 130 YEARS
OF VOLUNTEER SERVICE
GFWC members volunteered over six million hours last year
March 25, 2016 (Washington, D.C.) – The General Federation
of Women’s Clubs, an international women’s organization dedicated
to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through
volunteer service, will celebrate 126 years of volunteering on
Nearly 100,000 members strong and with clubs in every
U.S. state and eleven countries, GFWC is the world’s largest
nonpartisan, nondenominational, international women’s organization.
“Together, we can improve our future by Living the Volunteer Spirit
today,” said Babs J. Condon, who serves as GFWC 50th International
GFWC clubs and clubwomen are the fabric that binds not only the
Federation, but the communities in which they live and work. By Living
the Volunteer Spirit, GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not
simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on tangible projects
that provide immediate impact. With a grassroots approach that often
thinks locally but impacts globally, GFWC, its clubs and members remain
committed to serving as a force for global good, as it has done since its
formation 126 years ago.
GFWC is committed to remain a leading voice in areas our members
are active in every day. As an organization dedicated to community
improvement, we must take action on important topics that impact the
quality of life for all–especially those related to women and girls, early
childhood education, and veterans’ services.
OUR PROJECTS INCLUDE SIDE BY SIDE BRAIN INJURY CLUBHOUSE, ART STATION, RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE, EASTER SEALS, COMMUNITY GARDEN, RELAY FOR LIFE, USO, VA HOSPITAL, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER, SAFE KIDS, TALLULAH FALLS SCHOOL, WELLSPRING LIVING, SUE KELLOGG LIBRARY, AND MANY MORE.

HISTORY OF THE GFWC EMBLEM
GFWC’s emblem depicts a circular band signifying eternity. In the center of the circular band, the crusader’s shield emerges from a darkened world (represented by the field of darkness), which represents enlightenment. The enameled colors—red, white, and blue—are the colors of the United States of America. The red implies courage, the white equals purity, and the blue stands for constancy.
