Match Madness 2018

Help us care for our community! We are asking for your support to provide financial assistance to the Community Nurse who is a very valuable asset to the Shippensburg Community. This year we are excited to participate in the Match Madness campaign! The Partnership for Better Health has a matching gift incentive of $50,000. Based on what the Civic Club raises during the month of March, we have the opportunity to receive a portion of that sum. For example, if we raise 5 percent of the total funds raised by all participating organizations, we will receive 5 percent of the matching funds. We will also receive a one-to-one match for the first $1,000 raised. The Partnership for Better Health will pass 100% of your charitable contribution directly on to the Civic Club. The Partnership will receive no revenue from the match campaign. This is a wonderful opportunity to increase the value of your contribution and help advance the Civic Club’s mission to support the Shippensburg Community through the services of the Community Nurse.

Welcome to the Shippensburg Civic Club

The Civic Club was organized in 1911 with the objective to develop the educational and civic interest of its members and to advance the welfare of the community. Initially the club met in homes, churches, the YMCA or any available space. At a meeting in 1920 a motion was made that receipts from a November rummage sale be set aside as a beginning of a clubhouse fund. The Club currently has 92 members, many of whom are very active in the various Committees that make up the Club. The Court House Committee has the responsibility for the preservation and maintenance of the Court House and its antique furnishings. Court House Docents also provide tours during the year with an Open House each month from May through December. The Garden Committee maintains the gardens and grounds surrounding the building and also provides tours to individuals and groups.

There are six regular meetings of the club during the year - the Program Committee was established to select and present programs which represent the interest of the membership. The Public Relations Committee prepares news releases to inform the community of the club activities. Ways and Means committee plans and carries out events that will provide financial support for the various club projects. The Welfare Committee plans and directs welfare activities for the Club.
