Who We Are
Lake Oswego Women's Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
LO Women's Club was founded in 1974. We are a group of women with diverse talents and backgrounds. Our common bond: We care about building a stronger community. As a result of our fundraising, we are privileged to support local nonprofit organizations. Lake Oswego Women's Club welcomes women regardless of race, color, national origin, age, disability, marital status, religion, or sexual orientation. LO Women's Club is open to women from our neighboring communities.
What We Do
The mission of Lake Oswego Women's Club is, "To bring women together to promote the civic, cultural, educational, and social welfare of the community."
Through our grant program, LOWC funds nonprofit organizations in the Portland metro area, the majority of which focus on improving the lives of women and children. LOWC’s scholarship program awards scholarships to college-bound youth who have shown a continued commitment to community service.
Since 1974, we have raised and donated nearly 2 million dollars to local charities.
Partnership with Children's Center
In 2010 LOWC began a 5-year partnership with Children's Center located in Oregon City. Children's Center is a partner in Clackamas County's response to child abuse and the answer to a child's pain. A private, non-profit medical assessment center, the Children's Center supports children and families in cases of suspected physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, drug endangerment and witness to violence. Lake Oswego Women's Club has pledged to donate $25,000 over a five year period to benefit Children's Center.
