Our Beginnings

On September 21, 1894, a group of twelve women met at the home of Miss Margaret Bancroft in Haddonfield to establish a center for “the promotion of the educational, literary and social interests of women”. They named this group “The Haddon Fortnightly”. In 1925, with membership greatly expanded, this group of public-spirited women incorporated the pursuit of “civic interests of the community” into their objectives. As it celebrates its 125th anniversary, The Haddon Fortnightly continues to provide women from communities across South Jersey with opportunities for engagement in philanthropic and community improvement activities, intellectual stimulation, the development of leadership skills, and civic and social interaction.

Our Mission

Service projects recently undertaken by club members include working at the local food bank, cooking meals for families staying at Camden’s Ronald McDonald House, funding scholarships for local high school girls, making sanitary kits for girls in Africa and providing financial support to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of New Jersey. In today’s global world, the community served by The Haddon Fortnightly is defined by its local, statewide, national and international focus.
