A Proud Member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs of South Carolina (GFWC-SC) is comprised of more than 1,115 members in 45 clubs. Our volunteer service is focused on seven community service and special programs: Arts and Cultural, Environment, Education and Libraries, Health and Wellness, Civic Engagement and Outreach, Signature Program – Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention, Junior Special Project - Advocates for Children. Collectively, we are Lighting the Way. In 2019, GFWC-SC reported 1,291 projects with 72,421 volunteer hours spent to raise $344,011 and donate in dollars $251,159 and in kind $192,975.
The 1511 Society is a way for each clubwomen to support the many needs of our state headquarters.
The Sims-Stackhouse Mansion, our headquarters, still suffers from age!
This past winter we experienced major problems with the heating system which is an "old-timely" boiler/radiator system. Many hours were spent working with repairmen to determine the problems and to find ways things could be repaired or to find replacement parts. Now we must consider a new modern heating system in the near future. As in any home there are constantly maintenance but is seems that our grand old house is really showing her age.
We have long enjoyed and very much appreciated the tremendous support of South Carolina clubs in headquarters fund raisers and projects. At this time, just $15.11 from each GFWC-SC club woman would make a BIG difference and allow much needed work to move forward.
We are excited to announce that this year you can keep up with the "1511 Campaign" through social media! Follow us on Instagram - gfwcscheadquarters - and on FaceBook - gfwcschq.

The 2020-2022 Administration theme is “Turning for Tomorrow”. This theme is symbolized with a pinwheel. The pinwheel reminds us of the playful spirit of a child and symbolizes a healthy childhood which all children deserve. Club project work will be through Children’s Trust of SC with an emphasis on prevention awareness. Clubs will embrace this theme through their projects, speakers and planting of pinwheel gardens. Pinwheel gardens planted in local businesses, parks and schools helps raise awareness of child abuse prevention. Planting pinwheel gardens shows commitment to healthy happy childhoods and families. As the pinwheel turns, there is a child with a brighter tomorrow.
