Welcome to the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in North Carolina

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs of North Carolina (GFWC-NC) is united in its dedication to volunteer community
service. We are diverse in age, interests and experiences, and are united by a desire to create positive change in our communities.
Together, we transform lives every day.
