SPECIAL NOTICE: Our hearts are full of gratitude this morning (Oct. 1) for all of the friends who were able to join in our auction to help us exceed our goals! We really did not think this could happen but it did! We raised more than $7,600 — I say roughly because as people pay for the items they won, they have rounded up! We also received an amazing donation of $500 from a donor who wanted to be sure we made our goal. We we did! And it is because of the support from you!— thank you from the Woman’s Club Board of Directors
The Woman’s Club of Concord empowers women to enhance lives and community.
Our membership enjoys developing new friendships, contributing through volunteer opportunities, exploring current public issues, and assisting young women with scholarship awards. The Woman’s Club of Concord strives to carry on its mission as a positive influence in our community.

Members and the public are always invited to attend these events. On the first Friday of the month, we host a social gathering at the Club called First Friday for members and their guests to meet others and share ideas, contacts, concerns and just fun conversation.
Our Historic Home: Chamberlin House
The Woman’s Club of Concord was founded in 1893 by Mrs. Lilian Carpenter Streeter. In 1894, WCC was one of the first local clubs to join the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Horace E. and Nellie Chamberlin built a Queen Anne Shingle Style home at 44 Pleasant Street from mail order plans in 1886. Nellie Chamberlin bequeathed Chamberlin House to the Woman’s Club of Concord in 1919. Maintained by the Woman’s Club of Concord, it serves as club house and a home for women – literally and figuratively – ever since.
In 1982 Chamberlin House was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Woman’s club is a Member of General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), the New Hampshire General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC-NH) since 1894 and the Concord Chamber of Commerce.
