The Ponte Vedra Woman's Club is a 501(c)3 charitable organization run entirely by volunteers. We work hard raising funds at our events throughout the club year, which runs through the end of May. Our selected charities receive their distribution in May and our scholarship recipients are announced at that time.
Throughout the year, from time to time, our members also donate specific items needed by charities. This can take many forms, from filling the holiday wish lists for children at one or more of our charities, to collecting school supplies, clothing items, or baby needs, for example.
PVWC chooses charities each year to support. This year's charities include:
BEAM: Helping low income residents in Jacksonville's beach communities
Florida School for the Deaf and Blind: Educating students from all over Florida, tuition-free
Gabriel House of Care: Provides affordable temporary housing to medical patients from out of town
Rethreaded: Benefits victims of human trafficking through business
St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS): A therapeutic group home for boys with mental illness
Other charities that PVWC has supported in the past include:
