WOMEN'S CLUB OF COSTA RICA

The Women’s Club of Costa Rica (WCCR) which has been active for 70 years serving local communities and especially raising LOTS of $$ for scholarships!!  They are an English speaking group and beginner level English is welcome. 

WCCR is a Philanthropic Organization supporting education, primarily through scholarships and development of school libraries for children of Costa Rica.

They promote Friendship through Service and social events such as neighborhood teas, lunches, mini-fundraisers, dinners and other themed events, plus major fundraisers.

Their friendship mission is accomplished by welcoming new women into the community and introducing them to their fascinating variety of members.

MISSION:
The Women's Club of Costa Rica is a philanthropic organization supporting education , primarily through university scholarships and development of school libraries for children in Costa Rica.

OVERVIEW:
Building friendships, granting scholarships for Costa Rican young people, and donating books and equipment to public school libraries to encourage children’s interest in reading for fun

MONEY RAISED AND PROJECTS:
In the past 5 years, they have donated $250,000 to community service projects.

They raise a LOT of money for scholarships to help some of the best students in Costa Rica that don't have the means!!!  Past WCCR projects have included the first mammogram machine in Costa Rica, and the development of an award winning program to raise awareness of domestic abuse.

MEMBERS:
They have over 350 members from many corners of the globe, ranging in age from 18 – 95 (it does tend to be an older, more higher economic crowd compared to some of the other groups).

MEN:
This is a woman's organization but they have a group that's mainly for the husbands - Amigos Asociados that lends a hand when needed. (I don't think it's very active though)

MEETINGS
Meetings are generally held the 2nd Wednesday of each month around the Central Valley starting at 9:30am.

MEMBERSHIP:
Membership is 10,000/year - payable in December (pro-rated if after December).
