    History  
 

In 1920 a group of Carrollton women got together to form a special club which was dedicated to the study of books and fine literature.  What began as the Carrollton Study Club later became the Carrollton Women's Club.  The Carrollton Women's Club joined the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs in 1939 and remained a member until 1994 when the club voted to leave the Federation in order to focus all efforts in the Carrollton area.  We became incorporated on March 19, 2002 and have 501(c)(3) status. Our Tax ID is 71-0878550.
 
The club is known for donating its time, talents and money to various community projects such as donating a windmill to Rural America, an identification sign at Crosby Recreation Center and contributing toward the Liberty Chimes at the Gravley Center.
 
More recently, the Club has raised funds through their Charitable Fundraising and Disbursements programs and their Community Service projects. Texans Can Academy, Metrocrest Services/Community Clinic/Medical Foundation, The Family Place, Bea’s Kids, Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County, and Patriot PAWS Service Dogs were a few of the well-deserved charities that have benefited from this diverse and talented group of women.
 
Since 1980, the main purpose of CWC has been to provide scholarships to young women who live in Carrollton and graduate from local, public high schools.  In order to fund the scholarships CWC hosts an annual Spring Event which includes an elegant County Club setting for a luncheon, fashion show and exciting raffle. Scholarship recipients are introduced to the Club during our end-of-year meeting in May.
 
Our members participate in many special interest groups, monthly meetings which include informative, as well as, entertaining programs, and a business meeting followed by a “lunch bunch.”
 
In 2018 the Carrollton Women's Club celebrated 98 years of dedicated service to a great community.
