Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation announced the Women’s Club of the Berkshires has sold its property and donated the assets to create two funds that will carry on the Club’s mission: to support community education and recreation programs that foster and improve the welfare of all women in Berkshire County.

The proceeds have gone to establish the Women’s Club of the Berkshires Scholarship Fund and the Women’s Club of the Berkshires Fund, which will support nonprofit projects serving women and girls.

The funds are endowments that will continue in perpetuity and are currently overseen by an advisory committee made up of former Club board members.

The assets for these funds come from the sale of the Thomas Colt House in Pittsfield.
