The California Federation of Woman's Clubs

The emblem of the California Federation of Women’s Clubs was designed by Miss Bernice Scoville.

The emblem is the insignia of a common cause and creates a spirit of cooperation among those who wear it.  The torch represents the educational work of the Federation and invites all to knowledge of the principles of American Citizenship.  The wings pointed upward are symbolic of the higher thoughts and aspirations which are the aim of all.  The band encircling both typifices the unbroken chain of strength and loyalty—loyalty not only to the clubs, but also to our State.

The motto of the California Federation is “Strength United is Stronger”, chosen because it best portrays how our clubs work together.  The goals of the CFWC include (1) Building leaders and Training volunteers, (2) Providing service to those in need, (3) Active advocacy in legislation, (4) Encouraging enrichment programs for members, and (5) creating opportunities for volunteerism.  For more information about the California Federation of Women’s Clubs visit www.cfwc.org.
