NWC History…

The Naperville Woman’s Club was founded as

a literary club in 1897 by nineteen women

whose goal was to help members assume a

role outside of their homes and churches, a

bold undertaking in the 19th century. These

charter members initiated programs for

intense study, but philanthropic projects quickly

followed. In 1903, the literary club became the

Naperville Woman’s Club. NWC is a member of

the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an

international organization founded in 1890.

The Woman’s Club focuses its philanthropic activities on Art, Education and Community Service. The annual Fine Art & Artisan Fair is the longest continuously operating art fair in Illinois. An annual art contest recognizes the talents of area high school students. Several scholarships are granted each year. Fundraisers and collection events support the club’s donation initiatives to local organizations that provide services and programs in the three focus areas. Club members also participate in local service projects that benefit the community.

Seven generations of admirable women have given their time and talents to sustain the club’s mission of improving the community through volunteer service. A complete history of the club is documented in the book, “Naperville Woman’s Club Commemorative History,” available on and
