Who We Are

Women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.

Soroptimists are highly motivated professional women of all ages, cultures and ethnic groups who work to advance human rights and the status of women. Soroptimist members benefit from the satisfaction of community service, new perspectives, and lifelong friendships with like-minded women. Service projects range from gala fundraising events to elbow grease efforts. Our programs and events benefit women and girls both globally and within our local community.

Soroptimists provide support and funds to women and girls so that they might fulfill their dreams and achieve their fullest potential. Soroptimists also work to address the root causes of social and economic injustices and conflict. We are an active influence for positive change in society through awareness, advocacy, and action. Soroptimist activities involve members in a broad range of issues that affect the health and well-being of both people and the planet.

Women and girls have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams.
