Capital Campaign 2018 – 2019
“A History to Preserve, A Future to Ensure!”
Our Building is Vital to Our Mission
3300 Woman’s Club Drive is more than an address – – it is our “home base” where our many dedicated member volunteers plan, organize and carry out the work of the Woman’s Club of Raleigh (WCR).
For over 100 years, our programs have focused on helping where there is human need, supporting public awareness and personal growth, and lifting up the community overall. The WCR’s involvement in the Raleigh community runs deep:
- Our Community Partners: Triangle Family Services, The Salvation Army, USO, Transitions LifeCare, Alzheimer’s NC, Operation Smile
- Organizations We Work With and Support: American Red Cross, Helen Wright Center for Women, Boys and Girls Homes of NC, Habitat for Humanity, North Raleigh Ministries, Urban Ministries, Rex Hospital, City of Raleigh Museum, NC State Capitol, Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Foundation, Wake Education Partnership Foundation, Mount Vernon Redirection School, InterAct, Dress for Success, Mothers and Their Children (formerly Prison MATCH), Chrysalis Club, The Pretty In Pink Foundation, North Carolina Museum of History, The United Nations Association of Wake County, Heifer International, CARE International, Stop Human Trafficking, Partners of the Americas, Friendship Force of Raleigh, NC Museum of Natural Sciences, Garden for Hospice of Wake County, J C Raulston Arboretum
Our community outreach would not be possible without our dedicated member volunteer force. In 2017, for example, over 250 WCR volunteers donated 79,700 hours of their time working on 180 WCR sponsored or supported community service programs and activities.

With everything that the Woman’s Club of Raleigh organizes and supports in the community and the many volunteers the WCR has, it would be very difficult for the WCR to accomplish its mission without a central meeting place where volunteers can plan and organize the many initiatives, and where people can attend various WCR activities and events held. In short, our building is vital to our mission!
