Who we are
The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) is an international women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.


With more than 100,000 members in every state and more than a dozen countries, GFWC focuses on community specific, hands-on projects that provide immediate impact within the member community.

Explore our history, our commitment and our accomplishments by logging onto our GFWC International website at: www.gfwc.org.  Learn about our founder, Jane Cunningham Croly, and how her determination back in 1868 created a wave of volunteerism that continues to do so much for so many.

As an additional resource, our  GFWC Tennessee-specific website at www.gfwctennessee.com provides an overview of clubs and programs within our state and features the GFWC Tennessee Handbook.


What We Do

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 125 years ago.

See the Community Services page for a listing of GFWC Tellico Village community service programs along with a recap of our most recent local projects.
