Who We Are


The Mary Ball Womans Club was founded as a chapter of the Woman's Club of Fredericksburg in June 1962. In April, 1964, the club became an independent organization federated by the Virginia Federation of Women’s Clubs (VFWC) and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), the largest independent group of women volunteers in the world.


Today the club has members from the greater Fredericksburg area. The club meets the fourth Wednesday of every month.
GFWC Mary Ball Womans Club is a proud member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Honoring the motto of “Unity in Diversity,” we come together as unique individuals dedicated to community improvement through conservation, education, fine arts, home life and public affairs.


Our mission is to enhance the lives of others in the Fredericksburg community through volunteer service and fundraising and to serve each other through social and cultural activities.
