Global Initiatives

helping improve the lives of women outside Saratoga County 

GISISC began in 2012-13 through our commitment to increase our support of programs that improve the lives of women and girls outside of Saratoga County. In doing so, we hope to see a realization of the call to fulfill the second half of our mission statement -- improving the lives of women and girls throughout the world.

If you are a non-profit organization working on an project outside of Saratoga County or includes Saratoga County within a broader project, you are welcome to apply for a grant of up to $3,500.  The deadline is April 1, 2018.

Applicant Criteria: Organizations must have creative ideas that are consistent with the goals of Soroptimist International of the Americas:

  • Empowerment of women and girls,
  • Protecting the environment, improvement of living circumstances and so forth.

Applicants are required to:

  • demonstrate fiscal integrity and organizational capacity;
  • agree to undergo the club's organizational vetting process;
  • demonstrate significant programmatic impact; and
  • fully outline the specific use of requested funds.
