About

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. We host several fundraisers each year, including our very popular Holiday Home Tour, and our members are involved in numerous community service programs, including those dedicated to the Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach, and Public Issues.

  • $41,000 in scholarships including $26,000 to 13 deserving senior girls in Martin County high schools; $10,000 in renewable scholarships to five college students; and $5,000 to Indian River State College for a woman returning to school and a woman entering a certificate program
