GFWC Florida is comprised of 189 women’s clubs across the state whose members are dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others in their local communities.  With nearly 8,000 members across the state, these volunteer women’s club organizations attend to the diverse needs of their community through hands-on service projects, fundraising, education, leadership and friendship. 

GFWC Florida is part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Over 60,000 members strong, GFWC is united in its dedication to volunteer community service. GFWC members work in their own communities. While diverse in age, interests, and experiences, all clubwomen are united by a desire to create positive change in their communities.

GFWC Florida is unique in our breadth of community service. We are tallying our 2023 accomplishments! During 2022, club members across the state volunteered over 800,000 hours, participated in nearly 10,000 service projects, and donated over $3.5 million in grants, scholarships, cash and in-kind donations.

GFWC Florida is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501c3 organization.  In any given week, GFWC clubwomen across the state of Florida are preparing meals for the homeless, sewing blankets for kids in foster care, supporting our veterans, collecting and distributing new and gently used books to children to promote literacy, and much more. 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), one of the oldest women’s volunteer organizations, seeks to build global communities where people unite in diversity and dedicate their service to changing lives. GFWC celebrates the engagement of people of all backgrounds and believes in fostering an inclusive, equitable climate and culture where community members can thrive.
