Our Club

The Franklin Woman's Club (FWC) was established in 1922. In 1928, the club became part of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC). The GFWC, established in 1890, is an international organization with over 10 million members in 30 countries, a testament to their motto, "Unity in Diversity." GFWC members are the largest organization of volunteer women in the world!  


The GFWC, which is made up of 50 State Federations, (such as the New Jersey State Federation of Women's Clubs), is the umbrella organization to which local clubs belong.  As such, the Franklin Woman's Club is a proud member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC - College District), the largest volunteer organization in New Jersey. The FWC became incorporated in 1977.
