GFWC (General Federation of Women’s Clubs)

Founded in 1890, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs is one of the oldest women’s volunteer organizations. The GFWC “seeks to build global communities where people unite in diversity and dedicate their service to changing lives” and, “celebrates the engagement of people of all backgrounds and believes in fostering an inclusive, equitable climate and culture where community members can thrive.” The ABBC Coterie was accepted into the GFWC in 1940.
