A Message From the President


2023 is a year that Soroptimist International of Sacramento has been expectantly waiting for. Why? It is our 100th year!

Soroptimist International of Sacramento (SIS) was chartered back in 1923, two years after the Founder Club in Oakland. While the first meeting was held in October 1922, the very first slate of officers was officially installed in March 1923 by Violet Richardson, the president of the Founder Club.  One hundred years later, we are still here and focused on providing women and girls with access to the education and training they need achieve economic empowerment.

To celebrate this milestone, we hosted a 100 Year Celebration on March 4, 2023 at the Dante Club in Sacramento. The event highlighted the many years of service to the Sacramento community and showcased the Dream Programs: Dream It Be It and Live Your Dream.  A historical display with artifacts from every decade since our club started in 1923 was available to all to view. So many amazing treasures!

With 48 members and the legacy of some memberships going back to the early 80s, we are proud of SIS’s history and look forward to many more years of service. We’d love to have you join us as a guest for a meeting (1st and 3rd Fridays at 11:30 am) Please email membership chair, Mary Kobane, at, if you are interested in learning more about SIS.

Thank you for your interest in Soroptimist International of Sacramento!
