Soroptimist International of Placerville is asking for your help!

Since we are unable to hold our annual fundraising event this year, we are asking for community support to help provide educational scholarships, grants and signature programs to continue the good work of empowering women and girls!

With your support, local partnerships and Soroptimist signature programs, your Soroptimist Club can:

  • Award Live Your Dream grants to women heads of household pursuing education
  • Grant six high school scholarships
  • Hold on-campus mentoring programs for local high school students 
  • Fund an average of twenty $500 emergency expense grants, through our Helping Hands program 
  • Partner with a local expert to educate middle school students about modern day human trafficking
  • Send a local middle school girl to Tech Trek summer camp
  • Support downtown and local fundraising events with volunteer “SoroptiPOWER”

In addition, Soroptimist International is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our founding. For 100 years, Soroptimists around the world have committed to ensuring that women and girls have access to education and the materials they need in order to succeed. As an organization, we have an ambitious goal of collectively serving half a million girls before July 2031.  We are well on our way and hope you will join us with your support. The worldwide mission of Soroptimist is simple:  Empower Women and Girls to pursue their dreams.  We believe If you Dream it, You can Be it!
