The Magnolia Point Women's Club (MPWC), dba
MPWC Charities, with over 270 members, focuses on community
service, common interests, friendship, socialization and support
of the community and its members. Members enjoy each other's
company, attend meetings where they keep informed and learn,
and invest in their town and region.
The MPWC is driven and enriched
by a philanthropic purpose. Our
charitable efforts make a significant
difference in our community —
while providing our members with
a powerful sense of satisfaction,
belonging and fun. There are numerous
opportunities to get involved, whether
by leading committees, evaluating
grant requests, planning fundraisers
or volunteering time. The possibilities
— and rewards — are many.
In just fifteen years of existence, the club has given over $318,000 to those in need, primarily in Green Cove Springs
and Clay County. These accomplishments are largely due to
the total support of the Magnolia Point residents and the
tireless efforts of countless club member volunteers.

fun, friendship and laughter along the way. To
