Volunteers helping women using Soroptimist Club Grants

(Above) The Manhattan Beach, California, Soroptimist club recently delivered its 200th comfort bag to women undergoing chemotherapy treatment. With the help of a $3,500 Soroptimist Club Grant for Women and Girls, a $5,000 Community impact grant from the New York Life Foundation, and donations collected at fundraisers, club members purchased resource pamphlets, digital thermometers, eye drops, pillows and other personal care items for the bags.

About this program

Soroptimists work to improve the lives of women and girls in their communities and throughout the world. Often the abilities and ambitions of clubs exceed their financial resources. To help clubs meet community need, Soroptimist introduced the Soroptimist Club Grants for Women and Girls in 1997 to assist with community projects that improve the lives of women and girls. The Soroptimist organization funds about $125,000 each year in Soroptimist Club Grants. Since the program's inception, nearly $1.4 million has been awarded and clubs have assisted more than 100,000 women and their families. Recent projects include providing resources for immigrant women fleeing domestic violence; women and girls rebuilding their lives after disasters, funding a micro-enterprise artisan project for low-income women; providing reproductive health services for women in poverty; and teaching marketable job skills to girls with disabilities. The program is the recipient of an Award of Excellence from the American Society of Association Executives' Associations Advance America designation.
