Since its founding in 1894, the San Jose Woman’s Club has been dedicated to supporting the city’s cultural, educational, civic and community initiatives through charitable works and financial gifts including:
- Hosting the eBay Computer Camp for Girls at SJWC, in partnership with eBay’s Women in Technology group. The one-week camp provides mentoring for 30 at-risk girls between the ages of 8 and 11 who attend nearby Horace Mann Elementary.
- Support of women in transition by gathering and distributing women’s undergarments, hosting an annual tea or make over day, and throwing the annual OktoBRAfest fundraiser.
- Providing lunch and activities once per month for a local downtown shelter.
- Making pocket bears distributed by the police and fire departments, Halloween treat bags and Christmas stockings for children in need.
