The Junior Woman's Club of Williamsburg (JWCW) was established in 1954 as a volunteer organization for civic-minded women. Our mission is to live each day with a purpose. As a 501(c)(4) non-profit, we support a wide variety of charitable organizations and community services through financial and volunteer assistance. We hold several fundraising events each year: Whistle Belly, Casino Night, Breakfast with Santa, and Art on the Square. Proceeds from those events are donated locally in the form of mini-grants to other non-profit organizations and awarded as scholarships to high school seniors.
Our club is made up of women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Most of our members reside in Williamsburg, James City County, and the Bruton District of York County. Please join us in making a positive difference in our community!
JWCW is proud to be a member of the General Federation of Woman's Clubs (GFWC) and the Lee District of the GFWC Virginia. GFWC is one of the world's largest and oldest women's volunteer organizations. It was founded in 1890 and now has over 100,000 members in every state and nearly 4,000 clubs in various countries. The Lee District was formed in 1925 and is the second largest of the eight districts in GFWC Virginia. Stretching from Fluvanna County to the Chesapeake Bay, it is comprised of more than 1,355 members.
