San Marino City Club, commonly called “City Club,” is a community and civic organization, which has served San Marino since 1926. Our mission is to secure for the citizens of San Marino Unified School District the best civic, educational and cultural services and facilities possible, and to encourage and promote the highest standards of citizenship among its membership. Founded as the San Marino Civic Improvement Association, the organization was renamed San Marino City Club and met for many years at Southwestern Academy and at the San Marino Center and, on occasion, an annual event at the Huntington Library. In 2023, The San Marino Center is under renovation and alternative venues will be used.
We seek to accomplish this mission through: (a) regular monthly dinner meetings with distinguished speakers on timely local, regional and national topics; (b) sponsorship of forums on city and school elections and ballot measures; and (c) donations to local schools. civic support groups and local charitable organizations.
City Club is one of the leading civic organizations in San Marino. Our membership includes present and past city council members, present and past school board members, city and school officials, distinguished members of the community and local business men and women.
