WELCOME TO THE IWC CHARITY GROUP
The IWC Charities Group is an integral and vital part of the IWC. It is made up of a dedicated group of volunteers from the IWC and its aim is to manage the charities sponsored by the IWC.
The IWC Charities Group is run by members from many different countries who want to work together to reach out to people in this country and make the difference. The purpose is to ensure that the IWC Charities Group is able to help those who need it. As the IWC Charities Group is run by volunteers, there are no administrative costs included, so all donations go directly to those in need.
As a women’s organization we have decided to focus our primary attention on children. We have based this decision on the fact that children represent a society’s future, thus providing an opportunity to invest for the longer term and that in many cases intervention can be life-changing – for the child, for the family and beyond.
Our most significant financial source comes from the two biggest IWC charity events of the year: IWC Winter Bazaar and the IWC Embassies Dinner & Ball. As we would like to raise as much as possible money for charity projects, we also organize further events during the year (e.g. Book Sale, the Art Auction, raffles on the monthly IWC Meet & Greet meetings, etc.).
The IWC Charities Group has its own Co-Treasurer, who is responsible for keeping of the cash flow and collecting of the acknowledgements and receipts received from supported charity projects.
WHAT DO WE SUPPORT?
The IWC Charities Group mainly focuses on charity projects that are supporting children. You can find the Projects for 2017-18 here.
Broadly, these are divided into the following categories:
A fourth of our funds go to the Elderly and Destitute (EAD), mostly pensioners and homeless.
Separately, the IWC Charities Group also runs the Donations Office (DON), which collects and redistributes items to various charities. To learn more about Donations Office click here.
We have a very structured Charities Board, which supports and monitors every penny spent. The board works closely with IWC committee.
Are you interested in helping? We have many different roles within the IWC Charities Group.

We can offer you different ways to share your time and talent with those in need. We know that you have multiple interests and varied talents, which is why the IWC offers their members various options of help. In return you get the satisfaction of time and effort well spent. In addition, volunteering can be a great way to: meet new people learn new skills and gain useful experience. It should also be fun!
There are many opportunities to help others. We are confident that with your skills and experience there is something that you can do to help one of the charities we support.
The challenge many members face is finding the time to volunteer. If you are unsure about how much time to spare, contact us and we can help you on the different volunteering opportunities we have for you. If you have any concerns, feel free to contact us with your questions. email@example.com
