The Republican Women's Club of Chapel Hill

The Republican Women's Club of Chapel Hill was established in 1957 to support and elect Republican candidates to local, state, and federal office. The Club holds fundraising events to sustain the work of the organization and to make contributions to Republican candidates.

The mission of the Republican Women''s Club of Chapel Hill (RWC-CH) is to represent the ideals, goals, and values of the Republican Party of the State of North Carolina and the United States of America. The RWC-CH is for women who want to stay informed on issues that affect our famlies, our community, our state, and our country. The Republican Women''s Clubs were instrumental in changing North Carolina from a Democrat state to a Republican state in 2012. The Club serves all of Orange County, including Chapel Hill, Cedar Grove, Hillsborough, Mebane, and Chatham County.

The Republican Women of Orange, Chatham and neighboring counties encourage the active participation of women in the political process. We work to facilitate camaraderie and networking among Republican women, foster and encourage loyalty to the Republican Party and promote its ideals.

Through our efforts, we hope:

  • To support and to aid in the election of the Republicans in national, State and County Committees.
  • To support and to aid in the election of the Republican Party''s nominees.
  • To aid in the betterment of our community by participating in and/or contributing to community projects.

National Federation of Repubican Women


Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is one of the largest grassroots political organizations in the country with tens of thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation.

We empower women from all backgrounds in the political process and provide a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government, and civic arenas.

Our objectives are to:

  • Inform the public through political and legislative education, training and activity;
  • recruit, train and elect Republican candidates;
  • protect the integrity of our electoral process;
  • promote the principles, objectives and policies of the Republican Party;
  • unite and facilitate cooperation among the state and club organizations; and,
  • increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.



A Republican woman becomes a member by joining her local club or through a national at-large membership. Members of a local club also are granted membership in their state federations. State federations are chartered under the auspices of the NFRW but operate under their own bylaws. Although independent, state bylaws must not conflict with the NFRW Bylaws.
