Wake Forest Woman’s Club

Rooted in service to the community since 1961


The Wake Forest Woman's Club is a nonprofit community service club chartered by the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in Wake Forest, N.C., in 1961. Our focus is the enhancement and support of the social, cultural, civic and educational well-being of our community. Throughout the years our charity efforts have held true to this purpose, and we are an integral part of Wake Forest history and development - please see a new webpage about our partners to learn more. We welcome you to join us at a monthly meeting; details are below in "Just the Facts". Come join us as we find satisfaction through volunteer action! It’s a journey well worth taking.

Club honors origins

We are guided by the clubwomen who went before us. Our club logo, at left, is one example: Our members voted on Dec. 1, 2011, to adopt a logo based on the cover of the first Scrapbook.
On Dec. 1, 1961 - exactly 50 years earlier - the club had received its certification as a member organization of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.
A graphic shows the structure of the GFWC and how our club fits into it, and a slideshow gives examples of how GFWC clubwomen have lived "The Volunteer Spirit"!
The club is in District VI of the GFWC of North Carolina.

Just the facts ...

The club holds a general meeting the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m., September through May, usually at the Community House downtown. Between meetings, we are busy with service projects and other activities.
Please download our fact sheet at left for more information or contact Martha Loftin or Debra Wood, our membership co-chairmen.
