Soroptimist in Fairfield/Suisun

Chartered on June 20, 2002 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, the SI Central Solano club primarily supports the communities of Fairfield and Suisun City.  Members volunteer their time and efforts on many projects and community-based programs which focus on providing women and girls with the necessary skills and resources to achieve productive, successful lives. 

Some of the areas upon which we focus are domestic violence awareness; literacy and education; skills training and employment; women's health; scholarship grants and awards; and contributions of food, clothing and back-to-school supplies.  We raise funds to benefit these and other community programs through sponsorships and donations.  

Our Federal Tax ID # is 01-0714556.

What Is Soroptimist?

Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. The name, Soroptimist, means "best for women."  Worldwide, Soroptimist International has over 3,000 clubs with over 76,000 members in more than 120 countries or territories. 

The first Soroptimist club was formed in 1921 by a group of 80 women in Oakland, Alameda County, California, USA. Soroptimist was formed because in 1921 women who were interested in volunteering in their communities were not permitted to join male service organizations. Since that time, the organization has worked to help women improve their standing in the world. Despite tremendous strides, women still do not enjoy equal economic or social status with their male counterparts. As an organization of and for women, Soroptimist feels uniquely qualified to tackle the challenges facing today's women and girls.
