Please consider making a charitable donation.
As a charitable organization, we have been hit hard by cancellations of our fundraising events. Unfortunately, the needs of our community have remained the same or have grown.
Our events have been staples here for decades. However, the most significant impact is on the students who depend on our scholarships and the nonprofits who depend on our donations. In 2019, we awarded $24,000 in student scholarships and $39,750 to local nonprofits.
Because of your generosity, we were able to come close to those numbers this year. In May 2022, we awarded $12,500 in scholarships and $27,500 in community donations. (Click here to see the complete list of beneficiaries.)
We are asking you to help us fulfill our commitment to the community. And remember, every dollar you donate is a tax deductible donation.
Thank you for your support.
We will reconvene in September. Please stay tuned for a complete calendar of events.
Have a great summer!

The Year In Review 2021-2022
Civic Club 2021-2022 was a great one and ended successfully with the hard work of our board and support from the members, new and old! The membership came together, volunteered and attended meetings and many events!
We continued to meet at Messina Inn's open air pavilion! Our membership grew bringing the total to 143 current members at the end of the year. Everyone enjoyed getting to know these new ladies of which some have volunteered as board members as well as event chairs! Welcome everyone!
This year's theme CONNECT, HAVE FUN, DO GOOD had us on a busy pace. Our meetings varied from having speakers including: Wimberley Valley Trail System, Representatives from Gold Santa and Habitat for Humanity (organizations we support) and Member Julie Shepard Jenkins sharing with us what it’s like to be a child of well known NASA astronaut Alan Shepard. We had our annual Christmas Gathering, and spent time creating Valentines for seniors at Deer Creek, Symphony of Wimberley, Angels for Elders and residents of Alexis Pointe. Members from PAWS, Equine 2U and Mt Hoppe also shared how they’re helping in the community.
We continued to support the Hays-Caldwell Women's Center with cash donations and much needed undergarments. We also had the opportunity to visit their new Transition Facility and donate items such as bedding, towels and dishes.
Home Tour was a great success and we visited five amazing homes in the Wimberley Valley with amazing views, art studios and a few hidden gems.
The Spring Event committee changed their format allowing for a Murder Mystery Dinner at Vintage Oaks in October, Breakfast with Santa in December and 48 other events such as brunches, lunches, dances, tours, cooking classes, flower arranging, and others in the Spring. What a fun time we all had. The Golf Tournament, unfortunately, had to be rescheduled to Fall 2022 but many teams have already put the date on the calendar (Oct 10)!
Again the Board thanks all of the chairs, volunteers and participants who continue to share and give back to the community to support our high school students with scholarships ($12,500 total) and 23 non-profits who received grants ($27,500 total).

The Civic Club Legend
In the spring of 1979, a group of women in the area recognized the need to reach out and meet the newcomers to our rapidly growing community. The Wimberley Community Civic Club was organized.
The purpose of the Civic Club is "to nurture a strong community spirit through service and financial support while fostering lasting friendships among the members."
Membership is open to all Wimberley Valley area residents. We urge all newcomers to join or let us know you are here, come to a meeting, and then decide if you would like to join our group to help make Wimberley a better place to live.
