Who we are
Since 1926, the Salem Area Women's Club (SAWC) has worked locally to be the power of good in our community, making a difference through philanthropy and outreach programs while fostering connections, awareness, and life-long friendships. SAWC currently stands at 99 members strong and has donated more than $40,000 to nearly 50 organizations throughout the past year.
SAWC is a proud affiliate of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) and GFWC-New Hampshire.
Founded in 1890, GFWC is an International women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. Collectively, we are Living the Volunteer Spirit.
GFWC-NH's purpose is to bring together all General, Junior, and Juniorette Clubs in the State for cooperation and mutual helpfulness and to promote the highest interest of the community and State. SAWC is considered a 'General' Club.

After our June meeting, we slow down for the summer to recharge our batteries and spend time with our loved ones. Any events that we do have will be listed on our calendar. Please plan on attending our September 5 meeting to kick-off the new year!
Community Service Programs
Five core programs are the vehicles for organizing our volunteer efforts. Each CSP committee develops relationships with various organizations and agencies in the community to see how SAWC can help them.
