100th Anniversary Book Collection
As part of its centennial celebration, the Madison Civics Club donated a collection of about 150 books by Wisconsin women authors to the Madison Public Library. During our anniversary year the collection was displayed at each branch library for several weeks, before returning to its permanent home at the South Madison branch. We are pleased to announce that in honor of Women's History Month, our collection will again be on display at the South Madison library, from April 11 through April 30. The books will then return to the shelves.

We Met the Challenge!
Thanks to the support of Madison Civics Club members and Board of Directors, we met the challenge! During the 2012-13 Civics Club season and in honor of the Club's 100th anniversary, the Madison Community Foundation offered a challenge gift of $5,000 toward our newly established endowment fund. We contributed $15,000 and earned the additional gift. The Madison Civics Club Endowment Fund will provide a permanent base of support for our programming and operations. We invite your continued investment with a gift today or through your estate plans.
