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.
Our stories weave the tapestry of our lives. From the stories shared over coffee to those from the dinner table--no story is too small or too big. Your story matters.
Join us on February 9th when Denise Gallues challenges the excuses--my story isn't big enough, the story isn't mine to share, or no one will understand or care--to give attendees the tools to start their stories.
A native Nevadan, Ms. Gallues is the past director of the Nevada Writing Project. She holds degrees in English, History, and Educational Leadership from the University of Nevada, Reno.
The fifth edition of Reno's Twentieth Century Club Cook Book compiles recipes from past editions, starting with the 1907 cook book by women whose "modern kitchen" included a coal or wood -burning stove and ice boxes-- a wooden box storing ice for refrigeration. We sifted through hundreds of pages of members' recipes and archives to connect the past with the present. Hidden in the archives were the stories that needed to be retold of the women who founded the Twentieth Century Club in 1894 and whose names adorn many of Reno's public buildings and streets. Their credits include joining in civic movements leading to the establishment of women's voting rights and statewide kindergarten for Nevada's children. The Twentieth Century Club continues its traditions today. This new edition, filled with fascinating local and culinary history is a one-of-a-kind compilation of wisdom and recipes.
The book retails for $21.95 and proceeds support nursing scholarships at TMCC.

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.
