For over 100 years, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Connecticut (GFWC/CT) has been part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), an international organization with a mission to provide volunteer services, respond to challenges, and to seize a crisis as an opportunity for moving forward. Our mission encompasses being an innovative leader in education, and development of women to benefit their children, their community and their government. As a proud member of the GFWC, our clubs create global change on a local level. Our goal is to be of service to others, improve our social, cultural and physical environment and promote appreciation of the arts. We strive to become responsible leaders in our communities.
The Killingworth Women’s Organization is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). 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.
