Becoming a GFWC member means joining a local GFWC club, where nearly 80,000 members are actively engaged in volunteer community service in approximately 3,200 clubs across the globe.
If you do not find a club in your community or if you want to start a GFWC club in your hometown, please email our Membership Services Department. A club representative in or near the town where you live will get in touch with you to answer any questions to help connect you with a club.
GFWC members, from ages 12 to 102, live in cities, suburbs, and rural communities around the globe. They are professional women, students, stay-at-home moms, and retirees, united by a shared commitment to volunteer community service.
Members of GFWC clubs are encouraged to focus their efforts on Community Service Programs and Special Programs in Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention and Advocates for Children that meet local needs, and take advantage of our national network of organizations and programs that have provided a framework for over 100 years of accomplishment.
Annual GFWC dues are $15.
GFWC clubs, districts, and State Federations may assess additional dues beyond the $15 per capita GFWC dues. Individual members pay dues to their clubs. Clubs then pay dues to their State Federations, who then remit $15 per capita dues to GFWC.
Our member clubs belong to one of GFWC’s different club membership categories. Club membership categories are outlined and governed by GFWC’s Constitution and Bylaws.

Cherie Lee Williams
Cherie Lee Williams is a vibrant leader who has found GFWC to be a wonderful outlet for her love of community service and her can-do attitude. As both the President of the Mesquite Club (Nevada) for 2016-2017, as well as a 2016 LEADS candidate, she quickly learned the value of making connections in order to bring positive change to the world.
