More than 125 years ago, a group of visionary women formed The Woman’s Club of Evanston to address pressing social issues and unmet community needs.  Since 1889, the WCE has been a transformative community force, volunteering thousands of hours and making hundreds of financially significant philanthropic grants. Each year, WCE members raise and contribute more than $150,000 and 15,000 hours of volunteer service to local, not-for-profit organizations. With a vibrant community of nearly 400 multi-generational members, the WCE continues to shape the future of service and philanthropy in Evanston and surrounding communities. The Woman’s Club of Evanston is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Today the tradition of philanthropy and service continues our mission to connect women behind a shared purpose of volunteerism, social empowerment, and community support. You can pick up a book about the club by Erin Hvizdak from the Evanston Public Library.

The WCE continues to advance women, hosting events like International Women’s Day; programs on current events and culture; and Premier Events including the Holiday BazaarWCE RevueDreams Deliveredand the Spring Benefit.  Through active involvement, members develop as community leaders and form lifelong friendships. In 2019, the WCE is proud to support organizations in Evanston, Skokie, and Rogers Park, that serve the needs of children from birth through Grade 5, and whose mission is to ensure that every child has an equitable opportunity to succeed.

I hope to see you there this weekend!
