Solano county Soroptimist was chartered on June 20, 2002 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, the SI Central Solano club primarily supports the communities of Fairfield and Suisun City.
Members volunteer their time and efforts on many projects and community-based programs which focus on providing women and girls with the necessary skills and resources to achieve productive, successful lives.
The first Soroptimist club was formed in 1921 by a group of 80 women in Oakland, Alameda County, California, USA. Soroptimist was formed because in 1921 women who were interested in volunteering in their communities were not permitted to join male service organizations. Since that time, the organization has worked to help women improve their standing in the world.
Strong women led the way to over 76,000 volunteers in 122 countries world wide who currently carry on the Soroptimist mission.
Interested in joining Soroptimist or learning more about us? Soroptimist International of Central Solano County meets from September through June. Weekly meetings are on Tuesdays at noon. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently enjoying virtual meetings via ZOOM.
