Throughout its history, GLWA has supported charities serving those in need.

GLWA was originally an extension of the Lake Geneva Jaycees known as Lake Geneva Jaycettes. This group of dedicated women has given their time and talents to the community through direct service projects.

In 1986, the group declared itself independent of the Jaycees and became the Association des femmes du lac Léman.

Throughout its history, GLWA members have been innovators in developing and administering programs to address the needs and issues facing the Greater Walworth County community, including Meals on Wheels, Safety Town and Special Olympics.
