The Woodcroft Women's Club contributes to local charities with volunteer time, monetarily, and with donations in the form of food and household items. Year round, members volunteer in numerous ways at DCRC, Families Moving Forward (formerly Genesis Home) and cleaning the WWC's adopted portion of the American Tobacco Trail. 

Each club year, the membership nominates and votes on charities to support.  Some charities are regularly supported throughout the club year as Charities of the Month and during which time donations are collected.

At the end of each club year, the membership nominates and votes on additional charities and organizations which will receive our fundraising proceeds. The WWC encourages donations to local Durham/Triangle organizations, and we estimate that over the last 30+ years, the club has raised well over $150,000 for our local community.

The charities selected for the 2021-2022 year are: 

  • Meals on Wheels of Durham
