Women’s Board

Making A Difference At EC

The Women’s Board of Eureka College would like to encourage those who are interested to become active members of the organization. The primary purpose of the board is to promote good will for Eureka College and to enrich and enhance the life of the college by providing supplemental funds.

Eureka College Women’s Board is a working board which meets three times a year. Annual dues are $15. Membership consists of women from the communities that Eureka College serves and has traditionally included alumni, friends, faculty and staff or their wives, and wives of members of the Board of Trustees. Members participate in various ongoing fund-raising efforts to support the college.
