Who We Are
The Woman’s Club of Williamsburg-GFWC is a group of women with many different talents and interests who have banded together to enrich the quality of life for citizens of our community, all while having fun and forming life-long friendships!
We have a local history dating back to 1949, and are part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an international women’s organization dedicated to local community improvements by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. We are part of the Tidewater District in GFWC Virginia. The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is one of the world’s largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women’s volunteer service organizations. For more on the accomplishments of the Federation over the years, click here.
The Woman’s Club of Williamsburg-GFWC meets monthly for lunch September through June, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Meetings include a short business meeting and an interesting invited speaker.
Throughout the year, we raise funds to support local and international charities and to fund our scholarship program for local high school senior girls. We collect stamps for the wounded, recyclable items to help protect our environment, distribute Christmas gifts to public housing and nursing home residents, help the Salvation Army with kettle bell-ringing, and donate to the Community Action Agency’s Christmas food drive.
We are a 501 (c) (3) organization and your contributions may be claimed as a charitable deduction for tax purposes. Please consult your tax consultant to determine the appropriate amount to deduct. Businesses interested in sponsoring an event, please email us.
