Founded in 1948, the Boca Grande Woman’s Club (BGWC) has a long tradition of service and contributions to the Boca Grande Community. Through the Club’s Community Grant and Scholarship Programs, the organization impacts the lives of those living, working and visiting Boca Grande and the surrounding area. Our members give generously of their time, talents and funds to ensure the success of the organization’s goals and programs. With over 350 members, we are deeply intertwined in all phases of life in our community.
BGWC Creates Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund
Fund To Provide Assistance for Individuals and Businesses with Island Connections
The Boca Grande Woman’s Club has created a Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund. The intention of this committee-administered fund is to provide assistance for post-Ian repair and associated expenses to individuals and businesses with an island connection. We are very fortunate that some island residents have already made generous donations to this fund.
If you would also like to contribute, please mail a check to the Boca Grande Woman’s Club at PO Box 65, Boca Grande FL 33921. Please indicate on your check that your donation is for the Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund. Donations can soon be made through the club’s website. Applications and further details regarding this fund are available through the link below. The Boca Beacon will also provide updated information on its website and facebook page.
The need for assistance is great in our community. The establishment of two local funds will help to ensure that those who need help will receive it.
While the physical appearance of our island has changed drastically, our community spirit continues to shine brightly. We’ve got this! Together we will make our island Grande again!
