Soroptimist of Sacramento Members


Soroptimist International of Sacramento accomplishes much of its mission through utilizing and implementing the Soroptimist International of the Americas’ Dream Programs.

Live Your Dream –

Every year, Sacramento Soroptimist awards at least two grants to women who are the economic heads of their households. These grants are used to improve the education or career training of these women so they can improve their economic situation. See Grants & Scholarships section for more information.

Dream It, Be It –

Soroptimist of Sacramento presents this program to teen aged girls who face obstacles to their future success in order to help them improve their self-image and their chances for training for a successful career. See Program Activities section for more information.


Soroptimist International of Sacramento is proud of its unique program for providing college scholarships each year to eligible young women within the Sacramento community. These scholarships are funded by endowment funds which have been contributed by Soroptimist club members, former club members or families of former or current club members. Four to eight scholarships are presented each year through an application process open to young women students in the Sacramento area. See Grants & Scholarships section for more information.

Sacramento Community Grants and Services

Soroptimist International of Sacramento has provided grants to other non-profit agencies in the Sacramento area whose programs also work toward the fulfillment of our Soroptimist Vision, Mission, and Values. See Program Activities section for more information.

Sacramento Soroptimist Money Matters Program

This program has been designed and implemented by our club members and teaches women and high school girls in the Sacramento region how to manage their personal finances. See Grants & Programs section for more information.
