The Woman’s Club of Ramsey helps to better the lives of people in our community and in the nation. The Club addresses the concerns of the sick, the disabled and the needy, while also supporting local schools, the library, the historical society and the arts.
The Club is a 501C3 not-for-profit organization and is a member of the Ramapo District of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC). Founded in 1894, NJSFWC has 8,000 members in 200 clubs throughout the state and is part of the international General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), chartered by Congress in 1910 and the world’s oldest and largest women’s volunteer service organization. GFWC clubs helped establish 75 percent of America’s public libraries, supported the first child labor laws, and helped develop programs for senior safety, suicide prevention, and alcohol and drug abuse education.
Our projects are suggested by NJSFWC and GFWC. We benefit from their expertise, but we maintain the freedom to mold their projects to suit Ramsey’s needs.
Annual dues are $35, payable by April 1. GFWC and the NJSFWC receive $24 of each dues payment in support of national service projects.
