The Coastside Women’s Clubs primary goal is to responsibly distribute the money raised throughout the year through a variety of CWC events and fundraisers, and our Marketplace Sponsors and private donations. The continued faithful efforts of CWC members have been rewarded with much success and provided significant donations to groups and individuals in our community.
The Scholarship and Charities Committee considers new requests made by local charities, continuing gifts made to previous recipients, and determines which groups will receive a grant. In the Spring of each year, we meet to interview HMB High seniors who have been selected by the school as candidates for a college scholarship. We then select the students we feel the most deserving and recognize each with a gift at HMB High School Scholarship Award night in May. After receiving necessary enrollment documentation, our treasurer distributes the scholarship amount to the student.
In 2017, four deserving local charities, Coastside Hope, Sonrisas Dental Clinic, Puente, and Coastside Development Center each received an $1850 grant while twelve qualified seniors at HMB High School were each awarded an $1800 college scholarship. Additionally, the CWC provides funding for the Adopt-A-Family Christmas program and the Fall Backpack drive for needy coast side students.
