Philanthropy

They say, “absence makes the heart grow fonder,” and I’ve certainly found that to be the case with my College Club friends these past months. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 virus continues to compel us to cancel programming during the current year. Recently, our Board of Governors met (virtually) and decided to cancel our January and February programs in the interest of the safety of our members and because we believe the Cincinnati Women's Club is not likely to re-open its facilities to outside groups at least until then.  At the same time, it was a decision made with sadness, because we have greatly missed the entertainment and intellectual stimulation of our Saturday gatherings, as well as the friendly fellowship.

Our Board will meet again in February to assess our ability to resume programing for the year and to discuss dues, given our inability to offer programming so far this year.

​ The uncertainty is a disappointment, but it is certainly not the first time that College Club members have encountered adversity in our 128-year history. Our members have endured two World Wars, the Great Depression, and, yes, even another pandemic, over the years. Each time, we have emerged strong and true to our mission to support philanthropy, the arts, education, social welfare and civic improvement.

Once we do resume in-person activities, I hope you will give some thought to inviting friends who may be interested in becoming members. Our new Membership Chair is Toni Miller, who can be reached at Toni.miller@fuse.net or 513-382-6935.

In the meantime, please stay safe and well. Take heart in the small things that bring you cheer, and know that you are valued by your fellow Club members.

And have a wonderful holiday season!

Lifelong Learning

A wide range of carefully selected, thought-provoking programs stimulate the mind and inspire the soul of College Club members. A typical year includes programs focusing on local and national current events, history, culture, dance and musical performances – and a hilarious show featuring the club’s own thespians.

Luncheon Meetings

Delicious chef-prepared luncheons precede every College Club program, served on elegant table settings with linens and china plates. Table centerpieces creatively fashioned by College Club members – often with a seasonal theme – add a gracious touch.

Scholarships

Since the College Club’s creation more than 100 years ago, its members have cherished the role of higher education in their lives. Club members continue to give back to the next generation of young women through college scholarships that support their education.

A Proud History

The College Club of Cincinnati was founded in 1892, when female college graduates were rare. The original members committed to organizing as a club for the purposes of fellowship; intellectual and cultural growth; philanthropy; and civic service, which in the early days included assisting settlement houses in the community. In current endeavors, the club remains true to the spirit of its proud tradition.
