BACKGROUND

Philanthropy is one of AWC Berlin’s primary purposes.

ARTICLE II of the Club’s Constitution:
PURPOSE
The purpose of the Club shall be to help all American women and their families in order to make life happier and more effective. The goal of this organization shall be to promote the unity of the American community and enrich life in Berlin. The Club shall also present charitable events, the profits of which shall be given to furthering the cause of the Club and other recognized charitable organizations. Its purpose is solely social, educational, cultural and charitable.

AWC Berlin has two ongoing beneficiaries: globally, we contribute to the FAWCO Target Program, supporting the rights of women and children in the areas of Education, Environment, Health and Human Rights; and locally in Berlin, we have been supporting the Ronald McDonald House Berlin since 2004.
