I am so looking forward to sharing all the happenings within our De Anza District Clubs, California Federation of Women's Clubs (CFWC) and General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) with you.  There's always so much exciting news to share.

The California Federation of Women’s Clubs (CFWC) was organized in January 1900 and in May became the 37th state to join the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC).  We are currently the largest State Federation in GFWC with almost 13,000 members.  The Riverside Woman's Club is the oldest club still in existence in De Anza District.  It was organized in 1896 and federated with the state in 1900.  The De Anza District clubs have supported many causes including, but not limited to, local libraries, high school and college scholarships, women’s rights and children’s issues, conservation and support to military families  as our members’ contribute volunteer service to our local communities.  We invite you to join one of our clubs near you and become a part of Living the Volunteer Spirit that is so integral to GFWC and CFWC.  You will discover a diverse group of women of all ages, active in their community while enjoying a tradition of service and lifelong friendships.
