The JWC CARE Partnership was created so that the JWC and its members could build meaningful connections with charitable organizations for a significant period of time and assist these organization to fulfill and meet their mission and goals. Each year, the JWC looks for a partner with which we can form an integral relationship, partnering on causes, events and activities over the course of the year. The year-long partnership is culminated with the awarding of a monetary donation consisting of funds raised through the JWC’s annual holiday event, A Visit to Santa’s House.
The JWC CARE Committee is responsible for selecting the club’s charitable partner for the year and for liasing with the charity partner throughout the year on the organization’s projects and activities.
We are pleased to announce our new C.A.R.E. Partnership with Friends of Fairfield Public Library!

The Junior Women’s Club of Fairfield has been serving the Fairfield Community for over 50 years!
Through our sponsorship of various social and personal enrichment programs for women and children, as well as the presentation of fun, family-oriented fundraisers – such as Touch-a-Truck and “A Visit to Santa’s House”, the Fairfield JWC is well established as a respected community group.
Through the years, the Fairfield JWC has donated more than $400,000 to dozens of local groups through its C.A.R.E Program, most recently to King’s Pantry. In addition, the Fairfield JWC awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors through its Scholarship Program.
