The heart of The Thursday Club is the combination of inspiring women of all ages who share the gift of giving.
The Thursday Club Foundation
The Thursday Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt entity, was established in 2004 to facilitate the volunteer efforts supporting charitable activities connected with The Thursday Club, The Thursday Club Juniors, and the Professionals. We partner with established charitable organizations in their quest to better our community. Over the last fifty years, almost $2,000,000 has been raised by The Thursday Club primarily through our Annual Rummage Sale. For nearly 100 years, The Thursday Club has funded numerous well-deserving San Diego charities and organizations, including Balboa Park projects and museums.
Applications received each year are thoughtfully considered by The Philanthropy Committees from The Thursday Club, The Thursday Club Juniors and the Professionals. Beneficiaries have included organizations from: science, technology and medicine; education and sports; and parks and wildlife. A common goal shared by the recipients is that of making our community a better place for all. They do this through supporting programs that: emphasize research; provide for and empower people on how to move forward; and maintain and preserve our parks and animals.
Due to the uncertainly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, The Thursday Club will be unable to accept grant applications at this time. We extend our gratitude for your understanding and are hopeful to be able to continue our long legacy of community philanthropy in the near future. Please check back to our website for updates.
