Giving Back to Lemont

The LJWC seeks to provide financial and volunteer support to educational, civic and philanthropic efforts that enrich the lives of citizens of our community. The goal of our efforts is to help fulfill the basic needs of Lemont citizens of all ages with an emphasis on children, who are the future of our community.

The Lemont Junior Woman’s Club (LJWC) is a not-for-profit organization, providing cultural, educational, civic and philanthropic services to Lemont and its residents. The LJWC encourages self-improvement and fosters friendships among its members.

The LJWC is an award-winning service organization established in 1993 with a record-breaking charter group of 50 members, the largest charter group of any woman’s club in Illinois history. We are members of the 5th Junior District Federation of Junior Woman’s Clubs, and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). The GFWC, founded in 1890, is the oldest and largest nonpartisan, nondenominational women’s volunteer service organization.
