The Eastgate Junior Women's Club is a member of the national organization known as The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), and as such we believe in the GFWC's stated belief that:
'Members of GFWC are united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service. GFWC clubs are encouraged to focus efforts on activities that meet local needs, but are all united under an umbrella of program areas whose flexibility has provided a framework for over 100 years of accomplishment. In an effort to best serve our communities, GFWC coalesces with a variety of national organizations that provide information and materials to our local clubs. What follows is a summary of the GFWC Program Departments including hot links to a variety of our coalescing organizations.'

THE GENERAL FEDERATION OF WOMEN'S CLUBS (GFWC),is one of the world's largest and oldest women's volunteer service organizations. Working locally through thousands of clubs in the United States and globally in more than 20 countries, GFWC members support the arts, preserve natural resources, promote education, encourage healthy lifestyles, stress civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding.

Clubs shape their local agendas to suit particular community needs. Each local chapter benefits from membership, service, material, and program support from state and national Federation levels. GFWC headquarters in Washington, DC, a National Historic Landmark, houses the Women's History and Resource Center, a collection of books, periodicals and records devoted to women's history and women in volunteerism.
