Lighting the Future



Chapin Woman's Club is organized for the purpose of bringing together and equipping women to promote civic progress in the town, state, nation, and world; with specific emphasis on the needs of our community.


Our parent organization on the state level is the General Federation of Women's Clubs of South Carolina (GFWC-SC). On the international level, The Chapin Woman's Club is affiliated with the General Federation of Women's Club (GFWC), the largest and oldest women's volunteer service organization in the world. The GFWC is a unifying force, bringing together local women's clubs, with members dedicated to strengthening their communities and enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. With 100,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state and more than a dozen countries, GFWC members are community leaders who work locally to create global change by supporting the arts, preserving natural resources, advancing education, promoting healthy lifestyles, encouraging civic involvement, and working toward world peace and understanding.

Annually, GFWC members volunteer over 13 million hours and contribute approximately $35 million through more than 160,000 club projects.


Chapin Woman’s Club was federated in 1971 as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and has continued to be active, making a difference in our community for approximately 50 years. Chapin Woman’s Club serves our community through many diverse projects including our Designer Bag Event, Butterfly Garden at Crooked Creek Park, Meals on Wheels, Scholarships for Women, Senior BINGO, and Crafts for Kids with Cancer, just to name a few. Our grant process allows local organizations to apply for financial assistance for specific needs.

Club meetings are held the first Tuesday morning of each month September through May. We have at least one social event quarterly where our members have the opportunity to just socialize and enjoy each other’s company.
