GFWC West Virginia (GFWC WV) is a proud member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC).

The General Federation of Women's Clubs, one of the world's largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women's volunteer service organizations, was founded in 1890 and chartered by the 56th United States Congress in 1901. Headquartered in a National Historic Landmark building in Washington, D.C., GFWC has a long history of philanthropy, social and political advocacy, and community leadership.  More than 100,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state and more than a dozen countries, work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, encourage healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding. In 2006, GFWC and its members raised nearly $32 million on behalf of more than 230,000 projects, and volunteered more than 8.4 million hours.

Clubs shape their local agendas to suit particular community needs. Each local chapter benefits from membership, service, material, and program support from state and national Federation levels. Honoring the motto of Unity in Diversity, we come together as unique individuals dedicated to community improvement. Our mission is to enhance the lives of other through volunteer service.
