The Oregon City Woman's Club has a history of giving back to the community. Since 1903 the club has supported such programs as Doernbecher Children's Hospital, the Oregon City School District, medical research. eye exams and glasses for school children, Ronald McDonald House and many, many more.
Club members donate their time once a month filling bags for Backpack Buddies, providing food for elementary school children to take home for the weekend. Each month a different local non-profit is the recipient of donations from members, including food, personal items, toys or pet food.
Annually, the club distributes monetary donations to non-profits that address needs in our community. These donations are funded by proceeds from our fund raisers throughout the year.
In 2019 OCWC gave their first two $1,000 scholarships from the club's scholarship fund. In 2023, we awarded two $2,500 scholarships.
The club also supports scholarship programs of the GFWC Oregon which provide financial aid to students in the fine arts and those who are survivors of domestic violence.
Beginning in 2021 the club committed to a multi-year pledge for the construction of the Carol Danielson Suzuki Cancer Center under the Bridges to Hope Campaign at Providence Willamette Falls Hospital. We completed our pledge early with our final donation in 2023.
