Who we help.
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.
