The Twentieth Century Club (TCC) connects generations of northern Nevada women making a difference in our communities through philanthropy. The TCC produces women’s networking events exploring societal and philanthropic issues.
TCC members share a vision or purpose, but each have a different perspective. Its membership represents a variety of ages and life stories providing for impactful group giving—it is the difference that women make together.
Chartered in 1894, the TCC’s name was chosen to reflect a look to the future and the beginning of a new century. TCC is funded by memberships, sponsorships, and program revenues. It is registered with the Nevada Secretary of State as a domestic non-profit corporation and is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)7.
The Twentieth Century Club's board of directors were among the nonprofit board members recognized by the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada as generous leaders in the field of philanthropy in 2021.
Why is this so important? A board is responsible for providing a sound financial basis for the organization. By personally contributing, a board member recognizes this responsibility and demonstrates a commitment to the organization. According to statistics, only 46 percent of boards have a 100 percent participation.
The Twentieth Century Club has no personal giving policy, which speaks volumes to the commitment of its officers and directors.
The Twentieth Century Club is proud to be affiliated with these community organizations.
The Club's Legacy Fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Western Nevada--which provides expert stewardship allowing the TCC to achieve its philanthropic objectives.
Since 1898, the TCC has been addressing Nevada's need for nurses through its scholarship program. Truckee Meadows Community College is the Club's partner in training our next generation of health care professionals.
The TCC has been a Nevada-based corporation since 1907. As a business, it is essential to support the collective voice of business for northern Nevada--the Reno-Sparks Chamber of Commerce.
