we empower women and girls

Among us there is likely someone like you, or someone close to you. We’re women of many ages, backgrounds and careers. The common thread that binds us together is our passion for empowering women and girls.

our mission

Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.

our vision

Women and girls have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams.

our values

• Women and girls live free from discrimination
• Women and girls are free to act in their own best interest
• Women and girls deserve to lead full and productive lives through access to education
• Women from varied backgrounds and perspectives work together to improve the lives of women and girls

best for women

Sor-op-ti-mist means “best for women.” We work to help women across Bucks and Montgomery PA counties become their best selves.

nearing 100 years

Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California by 80 women who were inspired to fulfill the needs of their community. Today, there are over 75,000 members belonging to clubs in 121 countries.

Launched in 1972 by 31 Bucks County women, Soroptimist International of Indian Rock has tripled in size. It is one of the 1,300 clubs in the 21 countries and territories that compose Soroptimist International of the Americas, a federation of Soroptimist International.

breaking barriers

We are women. We know what it is like to feel the sting of discrimination and the pain of abuse for being female. We come together to break barriers and create a world where women and girls are free to act in their own best self-interest, be educated, and lead full and productive lives.

gathering for good

We gather together each month to plan and carry out the tasks that fund and deliver our cornerstone programs, Live Your Dream Education and Training Awards and Dream It, Be It: Career Support For Girls, and all of our other projects and programs.
