Soroptimist membership celebrates the unique power of women. It's a gift that women give to themselves: the
chance to
experience friendship and fun.

We hope you have fun exploring our website, learning more about the Soroptimist outlook, how we choose our
programs of service and what successes we enjoy.

We empower the Soroptimist dream by fundraising to further our mission of improving the lives of women and girls
through programs leading to economic and social empowerment!
Locally in our home town we are supporting the young women at Juvenile Hall; giving awards and scholarships to
young women and students; sewing blankets for Children's Family Services; sponsoring the Martinez Chamber's
Woman of the Year award; planning and assisting Dream It Be It's Get Real Academy; and, participating with Kiwanis
serving breakfast for Relay for Life.
We're looking forward to a busy and productive year! We hope you can join us at one of our meetings and decide if
Soroptimist membership is the right choice for you!
No matter where you are located, there is probably a Soroptimist club nearby. We are an international group and
carry NGO status at the United Nations. We hope to see you soon!
