Who We Are

The Alabama Federation of Women’s Clubs, (AFWC) is a statewide organization dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service.  Our members are your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and acquaintances. We are professional women, homemakers, elected officials, business owners, students, retirees, wives, mothers, and single women.

We bring members together and provide a networking system so that individual clubs may communicate effectively and combine efforts to better serve communities all across Alabama.

In addition to the joys of working with friends to improve the community, members grow through these activities, deepening their talents and skills. Members become increasingly aware of the value of their contributions to their local, state, and global communities. They come to appreciate the big picture of the small world in which we live and the direct impact each individual can have.

Local clubs, AFWC, and GFWC develop outstanding programs and projects to help ensure that members grow in understanding and are enriched through their service.
