Our mission is to enhance our community through active,
committed and civic minded participation.
“Beginning a New Century of Service”
Welcome to the Woman’s Club of Indio (WCI) the oldest service organization in the Coachella Valley. We were founded in 1912 and this past February we celebrated 100 years of community service. Our club consists of active, civic minded members who firmly believe that what we do makes a difference in our community, which is why we have thrived for a century and are still going strong. We are a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC).
During the last several years, our contributions to the community included so much more than just financial donations; we have given of our time and our skills. We created opportunities that enhanced and united us toward a better tomorrow. Thanks to the support of our members, the business community and the City we have been able to provide financial assistance in many areas of need. We continued our tradition of providing three scholarships to graduating seniors and one to an adult return to school. We continued to expand our Read Across Indio Literacy Project which provided a book to ever single kindergartener within the City of Indio along with supporting the Indio Police Dept. K-9 Unit, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission and the Coachella Valley History Museum. Our group also believes in hands on projects such as serving meals at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, food drives, Arbor Day planting events and much more!
As a member of our organization we receive so much more than we give. Lifelong friendships are established and the ability to get to meet dedicated and talented women is invaluable. Please take a moment to navigate through our website, www.womansclubofindio.org and get acquainted with WCI. We invite you to join us and to give back to the community through membership in our wonderful organization.
I look forward to a new club year filled with exciting events and projects.
