The Charmettes, Incorporated is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to improving the quality of life within our communities through advocacy, education, service and support for cancer research.

We were established June 17, 1951, in West Palm Beach, Florida by founding members Gwendolyn Baker Rodgers and Frankie Drayton Thomas. The Broward County Chapter was established in 1957. Today, The Charmettes, Inc. is 20 chapters strong nationally.

Our guiding principles:

Our commitment and dedication are to our organization, our members, and to our communities

We welcome, value and support the diversity of skills, expertise, tools and networks of the strong women that make up our membership

We recognize the importance and benefit of supporting the eradication of cancer and partnering with colleges and universities and others who share our values and support our mission.
