Established in 1930, Lombard Junior Women’s Club (LJWC) is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), one of the largest non-denominational, non-partisan women’s volunteer organizations in the world. They are also affiliated with the 190 federated clubs in GFWC Illinois, including 20 clubs in DuPage County as members of the Fifth District.
The club sponsors TLC Camp, a week-long day-camp for children with cancer and a sibling every summer and they coordinate the Lilac Princess Program for young women in Lombard. Members organize fundraisers to support many charitable organizations in Lombard and beyond.
Service is at the forefront of what our clubs stands for. We offer many different ways to get involved in our own community -- and the best part, we serve alongside friends.
The LJWC's takes pride in financially supporting organizations locally, nationally, and internationally. Our philanthropic fund donated nearly $50,000 in 2019.
