Welcome to the GFWC Illinois

Antioch Woman’s Club

The mission of the GFWC Illinois Antioch Woman’s Club is to provide intellectual growth and unity of effort toward civic improvement – a philanthropic organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

We are a fun, dynamic and energetic group of women who are dedicated to making a difference in our world and our community. The Antioch Woman’s Club (AWC) works to promote education, preserve natural resources and encourage healthy lifestyles.

Our work has made a positive impact with the elderly and people with disabilities, has been a voice for issues relating to women, children and families and has supported participation in the arts.   We encourage you to contact us to learn more about how you can get involved.

“Volunteers are not paid—not because they are worthless,

but because they are priceless.”

Membership in the AWC creates opportunities to socialize while working with others who represent a wide variety of interests. This makes serving our community and being part of a larger organization a worthwhile effort that provides many lasting memories and gratification.
