Investing in Dreams
Making a Measurable Difference in the Lives of Others
At Soroptimist International of Marysville-Yuba City we’re raising funds and promoting initiatives to serve the people who need them most. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society.
Who We Are
Established in 1929
Soroptimist is an international organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Over 80,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories volunteer time and contribute financial support to community–based and international projects that benefit women and girls.
Locally, Soroptimist International of Marysville-Yuba City has been making a difference in our community since 1929 when the Marysville-Yuba City club was founded. Soroptimist women have made contributions ranging from the first service project which established a scholarship fund to assist worthy girls in completing their education in 1929, to the current focus of supporting the Dream It Be It and Live Your Dream programs.
Our mission is to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. In order to accomplish this goal, the organization administers several international programs and grants.
“I am part of Soroptimist because it feeds my soul! To be around beautiful, like minded women wanting what’s best for the women in our community and making it happen! We want to mentor, learn and support each other in all walks of life (home, work, family)!.”
