About Us

The Italian Women’s Civic Club is an organization that conducts philanthropic activities in the Greater Rochester Area. These activities focus on meeting the needs of local charities and organizations that serve woman and children, people with special needs, the elderly, veterans, and many more. In addition, the IWCC holds membership in the Italian Civic League, the Federation of Women’s Clubs, and Casa Italiana.


The purpose of our memberships is to support fellow organizations and to share in community projects. Membership is open to Italian-American women who are interested in serving the Rochester community. New members are sponsored by any IWCC member.

Celebrate Italian cultural events

I love being an active member of this organization. Being so proud of my Italian roots this club was a perfect fit for me. We do so much good for those in need in the community. It’s such a rewarding feeling to give back and help others, plus we have fun doing it! I have formed wonderful friendships with new friends who are like family, they’re my sisters. I enjoy the camaraderie we’ve built around our Italian heritage.

The Italian Women’s Civic Club has been donating items to the Isaiah House over the past two years. Last year an angel was donated which I placed on our Christmas tree in the garden. That evening we had invited all of our families to our garden to place a ribbon on our tree. The angel welcomed our families back to our home. I can’t thank the Italian Women’s Civic Club enough for their support of our ministry to the dying.

Belonging to the IWCC has given me many opportunities to serve my community while making some wonderful new friends that share my Italian heritage. I am very proud of our Dante Scholarship Program and our commitment to support local charities.
