GFWC NM belongs to an international women's organization that has been in existence since 1890. Under the motto "Unity in Diversity", GFWC has built an outstanding record of accomplishments through their members. From 1905 to 1911 the General Federation appointed a committee to organize a Federation in the New Mexico Territory, which Mrs. George Frenger was Founder of NMFWC. As she was unanimously elected the first President, she decided she could better serve as Secretary. Mrs. S.P. Johnson of Roswell was officially the first President of NMFWC (now known as GFWC New Mexcio). Since 1890, over 80,000 members in afflicated clubs, District of Columbia, and over a dozen other countries has been felt by many communities in the United States and the globe.
