Soroptmist International Capistrano Bay

SI Capistrano Bay is part of an international nonprofit organization for women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.


Soroptimist is women at their best, working to help other women to be their best. Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California, at a time when women were not permitted to join service organizations. Our name, loosely translated from the Latin, means best for women. Today, we have about 30,000 members and supporters in countries across North America, Latin America, and the Pacific Rim. We are one of five federations that make up Soroptimist International, which has clubs in more than 120 countries throughout the world.


We’re devoted to helping women and girls achieve their potential. Our programs reach more than 1600 women and girls a year with $1.7 million in funding. Our award recipients consistently report completing or continuing their education, getting a better job, increasing their self-esteem, improving their standard of living, and serving as a role model for their children. Our highly motivated members make a real difference in the lives of women while building lifelong friendships as well as social and business connections. 


As a global organization with deep experience and insights, we know the best way to lift up communities is to educate women and girls. The generous support of our donors and community sponsors is making this possible. Your gifts empower women and girls to reach their full potential and live their dreams.  Soroptimist International of Capistrano Bay is a 501(C) 3 organization. We rely on foundation grants, private donations, and corporate support to provide vital services to women and girls in our community and throughout the world.
