Charities We Support

Proceeds from the rental of San Jose Woman’s Club historic venue, member and community donations, and proceeds from fund-raising activities support local charities that share the mission of the Club.

Charitable Giving Requests

In addition, a portion of SJWC’s annual budget is allocated to charitable giving. Charitable giving requests are evaluated by the Charitable Giving Committee and approved by the SJWC Board of Directors. The deadline for submitting requests for the 2018-2019 fiscal year is November 1, 2018. Anyone can submit a charitable giving request for an organization. Charitable Giving grants are announced in December.
