GFWC Tampa Women of Change
A community of young professional women striving to make a difference in our community.
The GFWC Tampa Women of Change was founded in 1935 and is a proud member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Honoring the motto of “Unity in Diversity,” we come together as unique individuals dedicated to community improvement by collaborating and by providing an environment to pursue projects of interest. Including volunteering, fundraising, and personal development, and socials.
Our mission is to enhance the lives of others in The Tampa Bay Area and Internationally through volunteer service.
In 2019 our club transformed into a virtual club to meet the demands of working women with busy lives. With no minimum requirements and low annual dues of $35 per year we coordinate our efforts virtually using Meetup and Social Media. You can participate as little or as much as you can. In 2021 we changed our name from GFWC Tampa Junior Woman's Club to GFWC Tampa Women of Change to align with our goals and mission.
A small contribution by many can have a big effect on our community.
