We Welcome You!
The Charmettes, Incorporated is a non-profit social service organization, full of dedicated women, committed to enriching the quality of life for as many as we can serve. The Charmettes, Inc. was established in 1951 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Our Founders, Charmette Gwendolyn Baker-Rogers and Charmette Frankie Drayton Thomas, recognized the need to bring together civic-minded young women with similar ideas and ideals. Today there are approximately twenty chapters located in the United States and Nassau, Bahamas.
Our National Project has been education awareness, research, and eradication of cancer. In 1981, our organization adopted the Howard University Cancer Research Center in Washington D.C. Thus far, with the help of supporters like you, we have donated approximately $500,000.00 to the Center. In 2007, an Infusion Suite on the campus was established in honor of one of our founders, Charmette Gwendolyn Baker Rogers.
Locally, our commitment to service is exemplified by providing educational scholarships to deserving students, donating to local Cancer Research, the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation, the Lupus Foundation and participating in numerous other charitable activities as stipulated in Section 501C3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
On behalf of the Broward County Chapter of Charmettes, we appreciate you!
