About the Delaware Federation of Women’s Clubs
GFWC Delaware is a nonprofit federation of 23 community women’s clubs located throughout the state of Delaware. GFWC Delaware is a proud member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. The New Century Club of Wilmington, Delaware was organized in 1889, the same year that delegates first met in New York City to consider a national organization, to be known as the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC.)
By 1898, when a state federation was formed in Delaware, the Wilmington club was already an important community institution. GFWC Delaware comes together as unique individuals and community women’s clubs dedicated to serving our communities through various community improvement and education projects. Our mission is to enhance the lives of others in Delaware through volunteer service. (gfwcdelaware.com)
