Why we need your help
We are at an awesome but critical time in our history. The New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC would like to increase its support to non-profits it has supported for over 100 years. These organizations represent our commitment in the Arts, Conservation, Education, Historic Preservation, Public Issues and Social Services. The Shining Future Endowment Campaign was born out of this vision.
