The Woman’s Club of Aurora created an advisory endowment fund to ensure the availability of a permanent resource to support its philanthropic activities.
The club makes annual suggestions for distributions from the fund for area charitable purposes.
The Woman’s Club is noted for its service to the community. Soon after its formation in 1891, members reached out to assist the special needs of children.
Prior to the days when kindergarten was offered in the public schools, club members provided financial support to the local Kindergarten Association.
After the association dissolved, many club members took over the operation of the kindergarten.
Through the years, the club has provided assistance to numerous charitable programs and projects which have strengthened the life of the Aurora community.
