Mission Statement


The American Women’s Club of Basel is a nonprofit social and philanthropic organization that was founded in 1947 and currently has 117 members.  It is a group with very diverse backgrounds, interests and ages, but with a connection to the USA.  Membership is open to English-speaking women who would like to participate in AWC Basel activities.  Our members support a variety of philanthropic causes, have fun, make lifelong friends and find the support they need while facing the challenges of living abroad.
