Striving for excellence in service. Be a part of it.

Brief History

The Young Women’s League, Inc. was organized and incorporated in Washington, DC. in 1941 under the leadership of Doris Carter Mundy, our Founding President, now deceased. She envisioned it as a charitable organization, dedicated to rendering financial assistance to help promote the general welfare of the less fortunate in the DC metropolitan area. Over the years, the League has expanded its efforts and broadened the scope of its projects to aid the sick and homeless, the disabled and retarded, the young and the aged, and has worked for civic, social and educational improvements in the community.


The purpose of this club shall be to maintain an association of persons committed to charitable endeavors; to provide financial aid and services to the needy; and to cooperate with other organizations in advancing the welfare of the community.
