The Power of Philanthropy

Throughout our club’s history, philanthropy and the power of collective giving has been critical to its mission. In the recent past, through the success of the American Girl Fashion Show and the sale of our award-winning cookbooks, The Saturday Club has been able to donate almost $1 million to important causes in our community over the past two decades.

The club makes donations to worthy organizations through our Philanthropy Grant program. Applicant organizations must be a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) designated non-profit organization and must support (with rare exception) our mission to benefit women, children, and families in the greater Philadelphia region. Applications are due by January 23, 2017.   For more details about our Philanthropy Grants, please click here.

The club may also award free rentals of the clubhouse for an organization to use toward a fundraising event. Organizations who would like to be considered for a free rental are encouraged to complete a Philanthropy Grant.

The following is a list of organizations who have received a Saturday Club grant or an in-kind donation of a clubhouse rental. Our American Girl Fashion Show recipients are listed separately below.
