What brought you into a local club? Who encouraged you to join GFWC? Even if a friend invited you to your first club meeting, chances are you later found out your grandmother was once part of a club, or perhaps your great grandmother.
Generations of GFWC clubwomen have joined together to make a difference in their own families and communities. If this sounds like your story, your journey, your path to GFWC, then you are invited to join The GFWC Legacy Woman’s Club. Likewise, you’re welcome to join if you are the one who started it all and were the first in your family to embrace the notion of Unity in Diversity.
The club supports the GFWC Women’s History and Resource Center.
Where the Club Meets

Minnie Bell Johnson
Minnie Bell Johnson is described by her fellow clubwomen as the happiest person they know, with a smile that brightens the whole room. Having just celebrated her 100th birthday, she has many reasons to smile. During her time with the Portland Woman’s Club (Oregon), she has served as both the club treasurer and club president. She’s still an active member to this day, voting on issues and club elections, and participating in projects like handing out personal care products to homeless women at the Rose Haven Women and Children’s Day Shelter.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
Junior Woman's Club of State College
When Robbin Zirkle moved back to the area after grad school, she addressed the challenge many people face as adults—making new friends— by joining the Junior Woman’s Club of State College (Pennsylvania). GFWC provided her a place to connect with like-minded women who shared her passion for community service.
