Our Mission


Bexley Women’s Club is about both service and friendship. We participate in community events through the year and hold regular club gatherings to bring members together. We offer many opportunities to connect, have fun, and make new friends.


Since 1937, Bexley Women’s Club has awarded scholarships every year to deserving students. As of 2021, the Bexley Women’s Club has provided approximately 915 scholarships to high school seniors living in Bexley, totaling over $570,000.

Social Service

Support for women & their families has always been a priority for Bexley Women’s Club. We work with partners like the YMCA Family Shelter, Bexley’s own Developmental Assets Resource Network (DARN), & Operation Buckeye to fulfill our social service mission.
