The GFWC Woman’s Club of Stuart is made up of women of all ages and backgrounds who are dedicated to serving the needs of women, children, and those in need in Martin County, Florida. We are a part of the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs (GFWC), an international organization devoted to service.


We provide scholarships to female students and support local charities.
