In 1966, the Marco Island Woman's Club was chartered by a group of 16 friends who felt the island needed a club to be of service to the community. Today the club still takes great pride in its many accomplishments in this Southwest Florida community:
- Providing educational scholarships to deserving Marco Island students
- Donating to the Marco Island Academy Capital Campaign Fund
- Donating funds to the Marco Island Academy Athletic Program
- Funding a soon to be built classroom at the Marco Island Nature Preserve & Bird Sanctuary
- Funding a Patriotic Bench at Veterans' Community Park Flag Plaza
- Funding a plaque at Veterans' Community Park Freedom Fountain
- Founding of the Marco Island Public Library
- Funding the Gazebo at the Marco Island Historical Museum
- Donating funds for the Marco Health Care Center
- Donating funds to Naples Community Hospital for equipment
- Initiating the beautification movement on Marco Island
- Initiating the original youth center which grew into the present YMCA
- Restoring the Marco Island Historical Cemetery and maintaining a garden therein
