a philanthropic women's organization
The Woman’s Club of Carlsbad was founded in 1925 around a common interest by our charter members, to:
Our members give of their time and talents because they recognize that even the best job in the world can’t pay you the same kinds of rewards you receive as a VOLUNTEER.
When you give from the heart, it enriches your whole life.

Areas of focus for Club Projects And Activities
GFWC Arts Programs:
The GFWC Arts Community Service Program encourages members to promote and support arts activities in all communities. It is designed to inspire clubwomen to engage the creative ambiance within their lives. Create programs and projects that include music, dance, drama, theatre, and other
arts-related areas, both traditional and innovative. The artistic experience can be outward reaching or for inner satisfaction. In other words, create an artistic experience that involves all programs and projects.
GFWC Conservation Programs:
The GFWC Conservation Community Service Program is designed for members to gain an appreciation for our environment. Through preservation, maintenance, and restoration of our natural resources, it strives to educate members about the importance of beautifying our communities; preserving,
maintaining, and restoring natural resources; and stimulating citizen action to address these concerns. Our natural resources include, but are not limited to, water, trees, plants, air, land, and wildlife.
GFWC Education Programs:
The GFWC Education Community Service Program works to improve literacy and education awareness in communities at home and around the world. For more than a century, education has been a cornerstone of GFWC beliefs and practices. In fact, Jane Cunningham Croly formed the General Federation of
Women’s Clubs “to support clubs throughout the nation and further their efforts at providing education, improved working conditions, health care, scholarships and other reforms.”
GFWC Home Life Programs:
The GFWC Home Life Community Service Program is designed to inform members of issues that affect the well-being of
individuals, families, and communities by providing
opportunities and resources to meet and address needs through volunteering. Through this program, clubs may develop and implement creative projects that promote a healthy lifestyle; increase awareness, prevention, research, and treatment of disease; target personal development; address the issues of hunger, inadequate housing, and homelessness; and/or prevent or correct financial difficulties.
GFWC International Outreach Programs:

Program is designed to enable members to become better world citizens through advocacy, education, and action, which will, in turn, affect change in and for our global friends and their communities.

and activities relating to civic engagement. This program
