Who can join?
Woman and men (yes, we don’t discriminate) who have a mutual concern for the welfare, interests, and development of the BWC.
What does one do in a Women’s Club?
As a member of the BWC, you are free to explore your own interests, at your own pace. Meet new friends with like or different interests than yours at meetings, teas, and luncheons. Learn new or hone old skills: Our Sections have programs in literature, writing, art, music performance, music appreciation, home decoration, health, and more. Enjoy working on our philanthropic endeavors as we help organizations around Westchester both financially and hands-on. Become active in our Special Events Section, which produces fund raising events such as dances, brunches, and other activities. Learn how you can help us organize our archives and maintain our building and gardens.
We arrange bus trips to New York City and other venues for activities such as museums, theatre, the opera and the ballet, all with great seats.
Where do these functions take place?
The BWC’s home is a beautiful, 1928 building built for the Club. An architectural gem, it is on the Westchester and New York lists of Historical Buildings and on The National List of Historic Sites. The rooms are varied in size to accommodate everything from small meetings to large luncheons and dinners, dances, and concerts in the all-purpose great room. This room, with its art deco and art nouveau charm, boasts near-perfect acoustics for concerts and plays and is considered one of the best recital halls in Westchester by world-class performers. There is also an adjoining, private patio for outside events, and we have plenty of off-street parking on our premises. Your membership helps to maintain the building.
Can I have my private parties at the Club?
Yes. As a member, you receive a substantial discount on the rental of the building for your special events over what is charged to the general public. You can entertain up to sixteen for a luncheon or other affairs in the Tea Room for a nominal fee.
What are the fees involved to belong to the BWC?
The one-time processing fee is $25. The annual dues are currently only $250 per year. Beyond that, there are no mandatory fees at the club. You pay for only the programs and services that you use or attend. You can be as active as you like. Of course, the more active you are, the more you get to enjoy the club, its members, and its activities. So, we encourage you to come often!
Can I make tax-deductible donations to the BWC? Yes! The Bronxville Women’s Club is a 501(c)(3) organization. That means that your dues are a donation and, therefore, tax-deductible along with your donations to our philanthropic, educational, and cultural activities. Also, funds raised and donated for the upkeep and restoration of the historic building are tax-deductible.
Can I bring friends to the club?
Yes! You can relax and enjoy yourself when you entertain your friends and relatives at our affairs. Many times, it is more elegant and less costly to entertain at the club than at a restaurant. And, surely, less work than doing it at home!
We look forward to welcoming you into the BWC.
