General Federation of Women's Club

Thank you to our loyal supporters: the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an international organization with members in the United States and in 20 countries.

The ladies of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs have been active supporters of EDGE for over 30 years and have proven their unconditional loyalty through sponsorship, volunteerism, and participation within the seminar. Supporting the staff throughout the planning period, the ladies have been involved in every step of the way. Not only do they provide countless delicious snacks and enough hugs to last a lifetime; they help by sponsoring several students each year to come to the seminar. Thank you, ladies, we are forever grateful!

About the Organization

The GFWC was founded in 1890 and is one of the world’s largest and oldest women’s volunteer community service organizations. Members include business owners, teachers, elected officials, home-makers, corporate executives, students, and retirees. There is considerable diversity in the ages, interests, and experiences of the GFWC members, and all are dedicated to working toward better communities. GFWC clubs have programs and projects that encompass some of the major issues of our time: community improvement, women’s health, child abuse prevention, substance abuse prevention, safety, literacy, and opportunities for the disabled. GFWC is also responsible for the establishment of 75 percent of the Nations’ public libraries.

What can GFWC offer EDGE Leaders?

Many clubs sponsor foreign exchange students, provide scholarships, and offer and conduct youth poetry and short story contests. The California GFWC offers opportunities for young women ages 12-18 to participate in volunteer community service activities through Juniorette Clubs.
