Soroptimist is an international organization for business and professional women who volunteer in their communities. Nearly 100,000 Soroptimists in 125 countries and territories contribute time and financial support to community-based and international projects benefiting women and girls. The name, Soroptimist, means 'best for women' and that's what the organization strives to achieve.
Soroptimists are women at their best working to help other women to Live their dreams. Soroptimist members belong to local clubs, which determine the volunteer projects conducted in their communities. Club projects range from renovating domestic violence shelters, to sponsoring self-esteem workshops for teenage girls to providing funding for programs for street-engaged women.
Coming from a variety of cultures, ethnic groups and ages, we represent a wide array of professionals who are leaders in our communities. We believe in the power of joining together to make the world a better place for women and girls. Soroptimist membership provides a unique opportunity to do meaningful, life-changing work in an atmosphere of fun and friendship.
