Philanthropy. Social. Hands-on. 

Celebrating 20 years of charitable giving and volunteering in Elmhurst!

It's about giving back to the community we love.
EJWC is primarily philanthropic in nature, but it has a social aspect as well. The main goal of the Club is to assist other charities through fundraising efforts in addition to hands-on work. Over the years we have hosted major fundraisers such as the Elmhurst Kitchen Expedition and Tickled Pink. These two events have provided a core of funds allowing us to financially assist other organizations in need of our help. For more information on our past endeavors, check out our Gallery.

Along with our charitable efforts, we encourage a social side to our Club. With more than 50 women involved, activities are planned for families, couples and membership only (book club, fitness group, movie night). In addition to our community service goals, we are in this Club to help each other and make new friends. Members traditionally make meals upon the arrival of a new baby and are happy to help one another when otherwise needed. Club members are also a great resource for new information, ideas, professional referrals and networking opportunities.
