For the 51 years of the existence of the Women's Club of New Seabury, PHILANTHROPY has been a guiding force.
Traditionally we have one major fundraiser event each year in the fall. In 2019 it was held in November and was called the "We Care" Giving Fair. Since 2008, WCNS has donated over $200,000 to our beneficiaries. Most are charities that help feed the community in need.
Also, an annual scholarship is awarded each year to the Mashpee Scholarship Foundation Trust. Each year the Trust awards a female graduate from the Mashpee School system who has been accepted to a college or vocational program to pursue advanced studies following graduation.
Please make donations to the WCNS Charitable Trust.
The Women's Club of New Seabury Charitable Trust is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Please look on the home page to see our specific request for 2020. This is not a typical year. We are asking for your contributions to the WCNS Charitable Trust which will be used to fund the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry and the Falmouth Service Center.
Recipients for 2019-2020, in addition to the Mashpee Scholarship Foundation Trust, were:
Boys and Girls Club of Cape Cod
St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry
Mashpee Council on Aging
Falmouth Service Center
A Baby Center
The mission of the Falmouth Service Center is to ease stress, reduce hunger and improve the quality of life of our neighbors in need. It works to increase self sufficiency by helping to build networks among clients, neighbors and agencies.
The goal of the food pantry is to supplement the food needs and provide five days of food for families in need. Upwards of 75 families are served each week all year round.
The Mashpee Council on Aging is an organized commitment by the population of the Town of Mashpee to coordinate or carry out human service, educational, social and recreational services and programs for the betterment and empowerment of the senior community.
It offers on-site food programs for its members, many from families living below the poverty line. The goal of these programs is to teach good nutrition and healthy eating habits as well as manners. The club serves approximately 840 youngsters.
This organization supplements critical basic needs that ensure the good health and safety of babies (including formula) in need who live on Cape Cod and the Islands.
It was established in 1998 with the purpose of scholarship assistance to Mashpee residents who have graduated from Mashpee Public Schools, Cape Cod Technical High School or a Massachusetts Charter School, and who plan on pursuing advanced studies following graduation.
