Who We Are


The Vanderbilt Woman's Club has been bringing women together since 1893. The Club provides an opportunity for intellectual, cultural, social, and philanthropic activities within the community and Vanderbilt University while supporting and assisting the mission of the University. The Club proudly sponsors the Stapleton/Weaver Scholarship through fundraising efforts.

 The Vanderbilt Womans Club follows Vanderbilt University Phase Guidelines for COVID-19.  We are in Phase II:  Gatherings of up to 10 as long as physical distancing can be maintained and safety protocols (face masks/coverings) are followed.

Members are asked to stay at home if they feel ill or have a fever and to bring their own food and drinks to events.
We look forward to resuming our regular activities soon.

Be well and stay safe! 


VWC President Tracy Stadnick, VP Sharon Hels, and Fundraising Chair Frannie Benner organize orders for
pick-up.  Many thanks to those who ordered poinsettias and succulents during our November sale! 
Proceeds help to support our Stapleton-Weaver scholarship. 

Volunteer Opportunity with Second Harvest 

Virtual Food Drive


A Virtual Food Drive link has been set up by VWC with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.  This is a good way to continue to volunteer from our homes.  Follow this link to make your donation online and read more about the details.  You may also mail a check if you would rather not donate online.   Join the VWC team, and let's see how many hungry folks we can feed!
