Who We Are


Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.


June 2022 marks 20 years of club service improving the lives of women and girls.

To honor this 20th year, we will continue educating ourselves on why, how, who, when and where. Raising and gifting money. Hands on service.

AND, working hard to position ourselves for 20 more years of service in chaotic times – working on lasting rescue, advocacy, and education partnerships, capturing your commitment and participation, prioritizing business over busy-ness.

AND, celebrating! Join us.

Becky Lessler, President


Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. We raise funds through private donations and fund raisers in order to provide scholarships, awards and financial support to programs that benefit women and girls.


Some of the areas upon which we focus are domestic violence awareness; literacy and education; skills training and employment; women’s health; scholarship grants and awards; and contributions of food, clothing and back-to-school supplies.
