Rancho Bernardo Republican Women Federated

The purpose of this organization is to:

  • Promote a wider knowledge of the principles and policies of the Republican Party.
  • Encourage active citizenship.
  • Foster loyalty to the Republican Party and to promote its principles and candidates.
  • Cooperate with the Republican State and County Central Committees for the election of the Republican nominees.
  • Promote an informed public through political education.
  • Increase the effectiveness of Republican women in the cause of good government.
  • Facilitate cooperation among Republican Women’s Clubs.


Founded in 1964, the Rancho Bernardo Republican Women Federated was among the first organizations in Rancho Bernardo. Our membership consists of a diverse group of Republican women in Rancho Bernardo, Poway, 4S Ranch, Scripps Ranch, Sabre Springs, and Rancho Penasquitos.

Associate membership is open to any registered Republican men, and registered Republican women who are full members of other RWF clubs. As a Federated Club, part of the yearly dues supports the California Federation of Republican Women (CFRW), and National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW). We are a 527(n) tax-exempt political organization.


Our political work includes supporting Republican candidate campaigns, walking precincts, voter registration, petitions, and attending local government council and board meetings. RBRWF holds monthly meetings where our Programs Chair strives to find interesting and knowledgeable speakers to educate our members on important political and community issues. Our Ways and Means team raises money each month at our luncheons and hosts several social events a year, to help finance our many club projects. The Membership Chair(s) lead membership drives to recruit new members to our club and hosts new member education events. The RBRWF award-winning newsletter is published each month featuring club activities, issues of interest, and legislative news.

Though we are primarily a political organization, our club is also active in community outreach and provides support to the military, first responders, charity organizations, and Young Republicans. We offer Charlotte Devlin scholarships to a local Continuation High School for students who need financial assistance to obtain their GED tests for graduation. The RBRWF General Meeting & Luncheon is held on the third Friday of each month, except July and December. Guests are always welcome.
