Why Women & Girls?

How We Work...


As a volunteer organization of business and professional women, we feel uniquely qualified to help women and girls live their dreams.  While it is true that both men and women live in poverty, face discrimination and must overcome obstacles, throughout history women and girls have  faced additional obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender.

Soroptimists operate within (5) broad focus areas:  Program, Membership, Public Awareness, Fundraising and Club Administration.

makes it possible for us to gain insights into and focus our member's efforts in the areas of Health, Education, the Environment, Economic and Social Development, Human Rights and the Status of Women, and International Goodwill and Understanding.


Public Awareness...


Club Administration...

enhances our members' Soroptimist experience through club growth and develop-

ment, social activities, networking, club communication, Soroptimist orientation and leadership training, and Legislative Advocacy.

promotes awareness of the Soroptimist organization in the community through our Website, our monthly newsletter, and a social media presence on Facebook.

enables our Club to support not only our award programs, but also to contribute to our community when we become aware of a need.
