Nonprofit Gifting

2016 Nonprofit Gifting Note

In 2016 we will not be conducting the annual gifting program. Due to the damaging fire of last winter, we are currently in a rebuilding effort and need resources directed to that effort. We look forward to working with local nonprofit organizations in various capacities in the near future. Thank you and best of luck with your important endeavors.

Community Service

The Woman's Club of Wilmette has been devoted to community service since the early 1900's. Several longstanding local groups were organized within the Club's walls, including The Family Service Center of Wilmette (1913), the Parent-Teacher Association (1915), and the League of Women Voters (1924). The Club continues the tradition of providing support to important causes by making monetary gifts, by offering Club space, and by collecting and donating needed goods.

How To Apply For Gifts

Nonprofit organizations are invited to apply for funding in January and February of each year, with gifts typically made in late April. Organizations fill out an application and submit it to the Community Service Coordinator for review by committee. Organizations may apply with special one-time, need based requests at any time.
