The Woman’s Club of Ridgewood
We are a membership of women who together assist hundreds in our area from the elderly to the young, providing scholarship monies for the next generation of college freshmen, holding food drives and other charitable endeavors within Bergen County. And we do it all while building friendships and infusing fun and culture in the organization. We also host game nights, concerts and craft sales, as well as blood drives, book club meetings and venue rentals. Every year, the Woman’s Club is fortunate to host celebrity speakers such as Sean Penn who discussed a work of fiction while actress Carmen Diaz entertained a large audience with an insightful talk about healthy living.
Since 1959, the Scholarship Trust Fund of the Woman’s Club of Ridgewood has awarded annual scholarships to Ridgewood High School seniors. Last year alone, we provided 27 students with much-needed scholarships to help ease the burden of the high cost of college tuition. Your donation will have a direct impact on the students as it will be used to fund scholarships for our recipients from the Ridgewood High School class of 2022.
WE ARE A NJSFWC MEMBER
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. By Living the Volunteer Spirit, GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on tangible projects that provide immediate impact. With a grassroots approach that often thinks locally but impacts globally, GFWC, its clubs and members remain committed to serving as a force for global good, as it has done since its formation.
GFWC members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding.
The New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs is a proud partner with Douglass Residential College at Rutgers University. In addition, Douglass students enjoy the many benefits of partnerships including NJSFWC sponsored scholarship programs.
