Branchburg Woman’s Club

New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC

A fun way to help the community since 1960.

Welcome from the BWC

Welcome from the Branchburg Woman’s Club!

Founded in 1960, our club is a proud member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Clubs

The BWC is a non-profit organization of women who want to help the community and  participate in fun, creative, and educational activities.  As a New Jersey woman with many responsibilities, you may think that your life is too hectic to consider becoming a BWC member.  However, even if you only have some time now and then, you can be a valued club member plus build new friendships, broaden your horizons, and help others.

A look at our membership will show that even busy women find participating in club activities worthwhile. It’s an easy way to feel part of the community, meet new people with similar interests, and learn new things. 

Club activities have evolved along with the interests of the club members.  The club has several extracurricular groups.  Some meet in the daytime and some meet in the evening. Activities currently range from crafts, gourmet food appreciation to film and book discussions.  New departments can be created as desired.  Fun day trips, evenings out, and special social events add to the club experience.

Meeting from September through May, typically on the third Thursday evening of the month, the club’s general membership meetings begin with a guest speaker or an activity.  Then there are refreshments, followed by a club meeting.

Consider coming to a meeting or two as our guest and bring a friend!  Membership inquiries are welcome, especially from residents of Branchburg and nearby towns.  Learn how you can become a valued member of our dynamic and diverse group of women volunteers by joining the Branchburg Woman’s Club.

Free & Easy Way to Help BWC's Philanthropic Fund

 

There is a free and easy way to support the Branchburg Woman's Club's annual charitable donations and student achievement awards and help yourself at the same time!

Did you know that you can shop at over 1,349 online retailers, buy the stuff that you were already going to buy, via the sites from which you were already going to buy it, and (usually) generate tax deductible donations to a participating worthy cause, such as the BWC's Philanthropic Fund?

Sign up to use the free iGive site as your password-protected shopping portal and then log in there, choose a participating online store, and shop. There is no cost to you and no obligation. Besides possibly generating a tax deductible donation to the BWC's Philanthropic Fund, you would have access to exclusive coupons too. Why would you shop any other way?  See http://www.iGive.com/BWCPF for more information or call the club at (908) 866-1824 or (908) 866-1060.
