Tacoma CWC Membership
Our belief in the power of collective giving, and our dedication to informed and sustainable communities came to life over one hundred years ago and has withstood the test of time.
As an affiliate club, the Tacoma City Association of Colored Women’s Clubs, Inc. (Tacoma CWC) is located in Tacoma, Washington. The Club is made up of four clubs that carry out services within the Tacoma Hilltop and surrounding areas. The Association consists of the Asberry Culture Club, Future Sevens, McCabe Twenty and the Matrons Club.
The Asberry Culture Club sponsor cultural events featuring arts, history, crafts and music.
The McCabe Twenty Club sponsor health and welfare programs and events.
The Matrons Club sponsors a variety of educational events and scholarships.
The Future Sevens Club engages in participation and development of women for leadership in government, business, industry, non-profit organizations of their community.
Together the four clubs make up the organization and respond to multiple and evolving service needs within the community.
Each club meets monthly, pay annual dues, participates on committees and programs, and helps to elect a Board of Directors who govern based on by-laws set forth by its membership.
Tacoma CWC members are enriched by the continuing opportunity to interact and network with national, regional, and state leaders of over 200 women's organizations.
As Tacoma CWC has grown, the value of this interaction has become widely respected - resulting in policies, positions and actions that have helped women and families locally and nationwide. We all agree the Association is stronger for having a permanent coalition facilitating women’s groups working together to create a unified voice for change.
The Tacoma CWC welcomes all women from varying and diverse backgrounds, age groups, religious affiliations and education backgrounds.
