A Tradition of Philanthropy
& Service


The Club has a long history of charitable and service activities. Some of its projects include preparing handmade items for convalescent patients and hospitalized children and presents for foster children. There are many groups that we regularly give donations and services to.


Charitable giving highlighted the December meeting of the Woman’s Club of South Pasadena. The annual “Spirit of Giving” luncheon program, held at the historic 1913 Clubhouse, culminates a year of philanthropic activities and projects by Club members. Guests were also entertained by the Theatre Americana musical ensemble.

Special guests from the Huntington Hospital Breast Cancer Program, County USC Hospital, Veterans Centers, and Neonatal centers were on hand to accept donations of items prepared and assembled over the past year. Items include handmade comfort pillows for breast cancer patients, lapghans for wheelchair-bound veterans, hygiene kits with personal sized toiletries for County hospital patients and homeless veterans, and crocheted caps for hospitalized infants. The Club’s Philanthropy Committee also presented monetary contributions to other charitable organizations, including the Holy Family Giving Bank, St James Food Locker, South Pasadena Nature Park, South Pasadena Tournament of Roses Float Committee, Urban Harvester, the Pascale Music Institute, Friends of Foster Children, the South Pasadena High School Band, and. the Domestic Violence Awareness Coalition.

The Woman’s Club, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 1899 and has a long history of charitable activities and service. They also provide scholarships to local high school students; distribute 1000’s of cookies to hospitalized and homeless veterans through “Operation Cookie” and volunteer for various community events.
