The Benton Woman's Club is a recognized 501c3 charitable women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service in our community.
The Benton Woman's Club was founded in 1910 and became Federated in 1914. We are a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC ) and the state chapter known as GFWC Kentucky. GFWC is the world's largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational women's volunteer service organization - founded in 1890. The national headquarters office is located in Washington, DC and our state headquarters is located in Frankfort, KY.
Our club is dedicated to serving the people of Marshall county through volunteer service. We strive to fulfill all the areas of service as set forth by GFWC while striving to help better the community in which we live.

The GFWC Arts and Culture Community Service Program encourages members to promote and support art and cultural programs in their clubs and communities, and to expand understanding on every level, from local and regional to national and international. Our goal is to create projects that include crafts, dance, drama, food, music, and other manifestations of art and culture that develop skills, awareness, and appreciation. It is designed to inspire clubwomen and ignite within them a desire to make the world a more beautiful, thoughtful, and caring place.
We aim to help others, while we also continue to learn. Projects in the Education and Libraries Community Service Program are designed to foster schools, as well as other educational institutions and opportunities. These projects promote libraries, literacy, and the love of a good book. Through these efforts, we encourage the growth of individuals and communities at home and around the world.
The GFWC Civic Engagement and Outreach Community Service Program reminds GFWC members that each of us is a part of a larger society and is responsible for undertaking actions that will create a better quality of life and foster a sense of community—locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. This Community Service Program highlights and encourages citizenship; crime prevention, safety, and disaster preparedness; the needy, hungry, and homeless; and our military personnel and veterans.
Designed to enable members to gain an understanding and appreciation for all aspects of the environment and the world’s resources, natural and man-made.
The human body, mind, and spirit comprise our health and wellness. To improve our well being, we must address three key components: nutrition, disease prevention, and physical and emotional care. This Community Service Program aims to explore the various opportunities for awareness and advancement of each of these vital areas.
Each term the President's of both GFWC and GFWC Kentucky pick a Special Project. BWC's own Special Project is Paint the Town Pink
