Mission Statement
The California Federation of Women's Clubs is part of an international community service organization which provides education, training and interaction opportunities for volunteers who are committed to individual growth and community improvement to enrich the quality of life throughout California and the world.

CFWC is

  • An organization of members located in cities throughout California.

  • Uniting women of all ages for community service and support of worldwide issues through our California Clubs, Junior Membership and Juniorette (high school and college) Clubs.

  • Divided into Districts with four leadership areas.

  • Responsible for contributing an average of 4 million volunteer hours and $3 million on 25,000 projects annually.

  • A member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, International, which is one of the largest and oldest volunteer organizations in the world.

  • A non-profit, charitable organization.

  • The California Federation of Women's Clubs (CFWC) was organized in January 1900 and became the thirty-seventh state to join the General Federation of Women's Clubs in May of the same year.  "Strength United is Stronger" was chosen as the motto and still holds true today as the Clubs working together make a difference throughout the world.  Our members continue to serve the diverse needs of their communities and country - through time of social change, technology advancements, peace and global conflicts - all in an increasingly independent world.

    Our members strive to promote education, eliminate illiteracy, encourage faithful citizenship, preserve our natural resources, encourage healthy lifestyles, fight to prevent crime, support the Arts and contribute to international understanding.

OUR GOALS

The California Federation takes pride in its community service projects.   We are especially proud of our efforts to enhance the leadership, tutoring and mentoring skills of our volunteers, members of the community and especially today's youth.

Through seminars, conferences, forums and traveling leadership teams we can make a difference in the way people cope in their day-to-day lives, in our ever changing complex world.

OUR GOALS ARE TO:

  • To encourage leadership for individuals, for the schools and for our communities.
  • To provide guidance in a variety of areas such as women's health, prevention of family violence, child abuse prevention and crime prevention..
  • To train volunteers who will work to eradicate illiteracy.
  • To provide our youth with the vocational and technical tools they need to be successful and productive citizens.
  • To motivate and produce the kind of volunteers who will meet the needs of their communities and make a positive impact in California.

CCOLLECT FOR CLUBWOMEN
 

    Keep us, O God, from pettiness;
    Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.

    Let us be done with fault-finding
    And leave off self-seeking.

    May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face,
    Without self-pity and without prejudice.

    May we never be hasty in judgment
    And always generous.

    Let us take time for all things:
    Make us grow calm, serene, gentle.

    Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
    Straight forward and unafraid.

    Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create
    differences, that in the big things of life we are at one.

    And may we strive to touch and to know the great,
    common human heart of us all.

    And, Oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind!
