Please consider making a charitable donation.
As a charitable organization, the Wimberley Community Civic Club was hit hard by cancellations of our fundraising events. Unfortunately, the needs of our community have remained the same or, in some cases, 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 again this year. In May, we awarded $20,000 in scholarships and $32,000 in community donations. (Click here to see the complete list of beneficiaries.)
We are asking you to donate if you can so we can continue to meet those needs and help us fulfill our commitment to the community. And remember, every dollar you donate is considered a charitable, tax deductible donation.
Thank you for your consideration of our request and know that we are here for you.
Monthly Meeting Dates
Regular monthly meetings are held the second Friday of each month.

WCCC 2019-2020 In Review
Civic Club started out the year with the theme: Together…For Our Community
We had an interesting year...from our September meeting, making comfort totes for children in need, to a virtual Zoom general meeting in May when the new 2020-2021 board was introduced and elected.
Various speakers joined us at our meetings including Ken Strange who shared the progress of the new EMS building. Home Tour was well attended and the rain didn’t slow anyone down. Rebecca Minnick hosted a Holiday Party in December for members and we hosted a Christmas party for Deer Creek residents. In January, the Spring Events committee gave us a prelude to what we’d have to look forward to. In February projectART brought supplies and we had fun making Valentines to donate to Deer Creek residents.
And then Covid-19 arrived, so unfortunately, Talk of the Town events including Crawfish Boil, Wine Walk, Style Show and others had to be cancelled which gave us a bit of a shortfall. Many pre-sale ticket holders however, donated the costs of their tickets back to the club rather than take refunds. In April we had an online auction with items from the Style Show. It was a great success and we were able to carry out our mission of giving back to the community in this time of need.
Many thanks to the members, volunteers and friends who worked creatively and tirelessly to raise money throughout the year for our local non-profits and high school senior scholarships.

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 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.
