LOWC members present 100 pieces of
member-crafted jewelry to Abby's Closet

Several members meet monthly to make necklaces, bracelets and earrings to donate to Abby's Closet. This collective effort began last year when members put together 40 pieces of jewelry; this year they more than doubled their efforts and created 100 pieces from a mixture of new, donated, unused and broken strands. LOWCs most recent monthly general meeting was held Saturday, February 21, at Abby's Closet where the jewelry was presented. Abby's Closet collects and donates evening gowns to area teens so that they can enjoy a memorable prom. A work party followed the general meeting and the ladies helped to sort many of the 7,000 gowns that are eventually collected. Many LOWC members also volunteer at the prom gown give-away in March. To learn more about this fun and worthy cause or to volunteer, visit the Abbey's Closet website. It is an impressive story!

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

'Women joining together to enrich lives in our community' is our mission.

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.

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is the Lake Run in Lake Oswego. All of the net proceeds of the Lake Run and other fund-raising events are given to our grant and scholarship recipients.

Since 1974, we have raised and donated nearly 2 million dollars to local charities.

LOWC hosted the recent LO Community Reads Dessert

Anthony Doerr, author of the LO Reads 2015 book selection, All The Light We Cannot See, spoke to a sold-out crowd of over 600 at Lake Oswego High School on February 11, 2015. LOWC sponsored the complimentary dessert by providing the desserts, hand-crafted Paris-themed decorations and bookmarks, and cheerful hostesses!

Several of the LOWC volunteers are pictured below with author Anthony Doerr.
