The Oregon City Woman's Club has a long history of giving back to the community. In the more than 100 years the club has been active the members have supported such programs as Doernbecher Children's Hospital; the Oregon City School District; medical research in areas such as Scleraderma, cancer and tuberculosis; eye exams and glasses for school children; Ronald McDonald House and many, many more.

Club members donate their time once a month filling bags for Backpack Buddies, providing food for elementary school children to take home for the weekend.

Each month a different local non-profit is the recipient of donations from members, including food, personal items, toys or pet food.

The club also supports the Fine Arts Scholarship program of the General Federation of Woman's Clubs, Oregon. Donations to this fund provide scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to attend college in the fall.
