FWCC Welcomes You
The Frederick Woman’s Civic Club welcomes you to our website. We hope you will spend some time learning more about our club and its century of proud service to the Frederick community.
What makes us different from other civic organizations in Frederick is the breadth of our volunteer outreach and our financial support for community organizations. Our members donate an average of 15,000 hours each year to make Frederick an even better place to live, work, raise families and enjoy life.
The club’s service to the community has evolved over the past century from helping to establish Frederick’s first public library to today’s many programs and projects. As we enter our second century of service, club members concentrate their efforts in six areas:
- Support of the Arts
- Conservation of Natural Resources
- Promotion of Education
- Encouragement of Healthy Lifestyles
- International Outreach
- Greater Civic Involvement
Intimate Partner Violence is our Signature Project. Our members support the Frederick County Child Advocacy Center in its work with victims of sexual abuse and their families. For over 35 years, club members have strongly supported Heartly House and its comprehensive services to victims and survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and child abuse in the Frederick community .
Preservation of the historic Steiner House is very important. Since FWCC purchased this 1807 home over 50 years ago, we have worked to preserve and maintain it to share with the community and future generations.
The Mardi Gras Ball is our main annual fundraiser, with proceeds going to support local non-profits, scholarships, and the preservation and maintenance of historic Steiner House.
Monthly meetings take place during the day and in the evening to accommodate our members and their schedules. We actively seek to expand our ranks with new members who can each broaden the effectiveness of the club.
Please take time to learn more about FWCC and our many programs and services. If you have any questions, please contact us!
