GFWC - Washington State is a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), a volunteer community service organization that supports the arts, preserves natural resources, promotes education, encourages healthy life styles, stresses civic involvement, and works toward world peace and understanding. GFWC - Washington State meets in April for a convention and in the Fall for a board meeting and workshops. All club members are welcome to attend both the convention and board meeting. We have clubs in several towns around Washington State. Each club selects the projects that they want to work on. Members are given the opportunity to be a part of their community, to learn more about their communities, to practive leadership skills and most importantly a lifefime of friendships.

The signature program of GFWC is Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention. Many clubs in Washington State are working on the "Step Away from Abuse, GFWC Sock Project". Help a club by donating socks for women and children in shelters.

The National 2016-2018 GFWC Club Manual is now available on the Links section of this page (lower left menu bar)
The Manual and Forms page of this web site has a one page guide that may be helpful the next time your club has something to share with our fellow clubs around the state. the Clubwoman's Guide to the GFWC-WS Communication Tools. This lays out the three main tools we use statewide. The Washington Clubwomen newsletter, our state web site and our state Facebook page. It provides contact information for each and the timeframes for submitting information. It also has some helpful hints on organizing content and pictures.
