When you become a member of the High Springs New Century Woman's Club you are automatically a member of our national and state organizations.
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service and is headquartered in Washington D.C. Our Florida headquarters is located in Lakeland, Florida.
GFWC’s emblem depicts a circular band signifying eternity. In the center of the circular band, the crusader's shield emerges from a darkened world (represented by the field of darkness), which represents enlightenment. The enameled colors—red, white, and blue—are the colors of the United States of America. The red implies courage, the white equals purity, and the blue stands for constancy.
With over 80,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state, the District of Columbia, and more than a dozen countries, GFWC members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding.
In the calendar year 2020 (with full COVID-19 restrictions in place), GFWC members across the world held 74,702 projects, working 3,640,336 volunteer hours. Clubs donated $9,412,210 to charities along with $6,775,312 of in-kind donations.
Our purpose is to promote and provide civic, educational and charitable activities…we are dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service.
