The San José Woman's Club has been a formal organization since 1894, when nine women first gathered to discuss forming an alliance. At that time, women across the nation were forming clubs to study and discuss various topics of importance.

Today, SJWC is focused on providing scholarships for local students, funding local and women's charitable organizations, preserving its landmark Clubhouse, and providing a home for like-minded people to gather together to enjoy camaraderie and work on mutual goals. Download the Club backgrounder for more information.

Funds for SJWC's charitable work come from donations, fundraising events, and rental of our historic Clubhouse. Help Preserve SJWC's mission by donating now. You can aslo shop Amazon smile to donate. Click here for information about renting the Clubhouse for your event or meeting.
