Our Mission Statement

The Hellenic Women’s Club, Inc., also known as Epsilon Omicron Kappa (EOK), engages in wide reaching philanthropic endeavors while promoting Hellenic ideals, culture, and community in New England. Founded in 1936 by a group of seven women to assist Greek war orphans, the EOK continues today as a 501(c)(3) not-forprofit organization which is characterized by a hardworking group of uniquely dedicated women who offer their talents, energy, and spirit to the mission of charity.

For three quarters of a century, the Hellenic Women’s Club has enjoyed the generous and continued support of its patrons and Sustaining Sponsors. This partnership has allowed the EOK to make annual gifts to a variety of medical, cultural, educational, and institutional organizations in the greater Boston area and beyond. In addition, the EOK is proud to have established the Demetra Fund for Breast Cancer Research and Patient Assistance in memory of a dear member. To commemorate the Club’s 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee, the Hellenic Women’s Club Scholarship was launched in 2011, honoring its scholarship mission.

The Hellenic Women’s Club celebrates philanthropy and community at its annual Mistletoe Ball, which was inaugurated in 1946 and is believed to be the longest consecutive event of its kind in Boston. This holiday benefit, along with a spring event, has enabled the EOK to award nearly $2 million to worthy organizations in the past sixteen years alone.

We invite you to become involved and support our fundraising.
