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 last year. In May 2020, 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 help us fulfill our commitment to the community. And remember, every dollar you donate is a tax deductible donation.
Thank you for your support.

The Year In Review 2020-2021
Civic Club started out much like it ended the previous year. And when or how would it be safe to meet again! Our talented Board met and met, deliberated as to how we could continue as we’re so accustomed and what would Home Tour, Spring Event and Style Show look like in a pandemic.
We were able to have our general meetings in outdoor locations, wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines. We met at The Waters Point, Longleaf Craft Kitchen and Messina Inn with Miss Red's providing delicious boxed lunches.
Our theme "Together" continued and we invited local speakers. Tom Gordon and Cris Peterson, whom you may have seen at Market Days, gave us an overview of their Pepper Project where they raise money in support of small businesses and students in Cambodia. We then had Ida Miller from the Hays County League of Women Voters give an overview of the 19th amendment and what it means for all to vote. Robyn Clark from the Herb Room shared her knowledge of herbs and plants for a holiday home. Carrie Campbell presented the progress on the Wimberley Library expansion.
Time for fun included a holiday party at Longleaf. The Spring Event committee shared fundraiser information. Although we missed out on completing our Valentines for seniors due to the big storm, we were able to share some with Angels for Elders and Wimberley Home Health.
The Home Tour committee put on a very successful event on April 16 and 17. If you missed it, you can watch the video here.
Various service projects included providing undergarments for Hays Caldwell Women’s Center, a food drive for local organizations and donating new books to the library.
Many thanks to the members, volunteers and friends who work tirelessly and creatively to raise money so that we may continue to support local non-profits and high school seniors. This year we donated $12,800 to ten graduating seniors and $19,200 went to 16 local organizations.

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.
