The Woman’s Club of

Fort Worth Magnolia Designation


The Magnolia designation was established in 2014 to recognize gifts made to The Woman’s Club of Fort Worth in the amount of $1000 and up.  Magnolias have played an important part in the history of The Woman’s Club of Fort Worth.  Going back as far as the 1920s, it is noted that Magnolias first graced our beautiful banquet table in the dining room of the William G.  Newbie Memorial building and our records indicate that: “It was decided in 1940 that the annual open meeting luncheon be designated as a magnolia luncheon… The tables or shall always be decorated with magnolias from the Club trees.”  We are pleased to add another tradition to The Woman’s Club of Fort Worth that involves the use of magnolias.


Since The Woman’s Club of Fort Worth is a 501(c)(4) entity, gifts are not tax-deductible.

Gifts of $100 0 or more...
