Club History
Organized 1920
Federated 1922
Incorportated 1956

​Welcome to GFWC Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach  The Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach was organized in 1920 by twenty-seven ladies who met in the city library with the goal of doing everything possible to improve their city, educationally and physically. The Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach was born. 

In January 1960, ground was broken for the new Club House on land which was donated by Mr. C. E Ward.  
The completed building is in a perfect location, three blocks from the beach, where it sits amongst large
​live oaks and colorful azaleas. 

The Woman' s club of Fernandina Beach is a non profit 501(c) 3 organization and an affiliate of the General Federation of Woman's Clubs  (GFWC). Our members do volunteer work in the local community and raise funds in support of women's health and the promotion of literacy and education. 

​May 2016, GFWC Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach member, Mary Powell, becomes GFWC-Florida President for 2016-2018

GFWC Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach is the sponsoring organization for Little Women of Fernandina Beach.
