Women Making a Difference

The Catalina Island Women’s Forum (CIWF) serves the women in our community by providing services such as mentoring for high school girls, support for the victims of domestic violence and opportunities to enrich everyday lives of our local women and girls.

CIWF is a non-profit organization and was formed by a remarkable group of local women in May, 1995. Our vision statement of “Women Making A Difference” reflects our goal of making a difference in our own lives, in the lives of our fellow members and in the lives of the women of our community. We are always looking for new members to bring their unique talents to our group.

Contact us about our next meeting and see if this is the right time for you to join the Catalina Island Women’s Forum.


We bring a host of information and activities for Avalon’s junior and senior girls to help prepare them for life after high school.


Our annual Trip Raffle raises funds for the mentoring and scholarship programs benefiting Avalon’s junior and senior high school girls.
