“It’s a volunteer thing…”
Organizations like The Woman’s Club of Colorado Springs (WCCS) are exactly what professional New York Journalist Jane Cunningham Croly, had in mind when she formed a women’s club in 1868 in response to being denied the opportunity to attend a dinner honoring novelist Charles Dickens, simply because she was a woman. Croly retaliated with the power of unity and the result was a national organization of Women’s Clubs dedicated to community improvement through “Unity in Diversity.”
WCCS has been a proud member of The General Federation of Women’s Clubs since 1904. Honoring the motto “Unity in Diversity”, we come together as unique individuals, with a variety of talents, dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service, donations and fundraising. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we support a variety of programs including; Early Connections Learning Centers, Children’s Literacy, Empty Stocking Fund, A Kidz Hope, Meadow’s Park Community Center, Partners in Housing, Ronald McDonald House, Scholarships for Colorado College women students and more.
We offer programs of interest to enrich our members and community that include the Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Affairs, and Public Affairs. If you are looking for connections to your community, are interested in meeting new friends, are searching for personal growth and enrichment come join us. We are always looking for vibrant women who want to make a difference in their community.
