OUR MISSION is to support women and children in crisis throughout the South Bay area.
ESTABLISHED in 1958 as a non-profit public benefit corporation, the Palos Verdes Junior Women’s Club is designated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
MEMBERSHIP is by invitation to women over 21 who reside on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Our members are a diverse group, including community leaders, stay-at-home moms, and professional women in business, law and medicine. Our organization is 100% volunteer; we have no paid staff.
OUR GOAL is to promote the social welfare of the greater South Bay community through financial assistance and hands-on support.
FOCUS is placed on groups that have critical, yet often overlooked needs. Our contributions provide assistance to philanthropies that are categorized as follows:
Crisis - Support immediate life-threatening or critical needs
Intervention - Provide long-term needs of a critical nature
Prevention - Prevent crisis situations from happening
Support - Provide assistance through positive encouragement
Service - Provide assistance to the general public.
FUNDRAISING activities, in which our members are required to participate, include a Holiday Luncheon and Boutique in the late Fall, and a Spring Fundraiser in late March.
