About Our Club
The Gainesville Woman's Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization affiliated with the Florida Federation of Women's Clubs and the parent organization, the General Federation of Women's Clubs. Members are brought together through a common interest to address all aspects for improving our community through service and charitable commitments. The club is strictly non-political. While the club’s mission is one of community service, it also provides members the opportunity for socializing and leadership development.
The club is part of District 5 within GFWC Florida. With a long tradition of service to the community, the Gainesville Woman’s Club continues to be a force for the betterment of Gainesville. We cherish our role in the community and the ability to respond to issues. Our clubhouse is located just west of the University of Florida and is a premiere facility for meetings and events. Our club flower, the yellow jasmine, and colors, green and gold, are featured throughout the web-pages.
