Join Soroptimist

We are looking for new members!

Make a Difference!


Join community-minded women who are giving back to our local area and beyond.

Since 1979, we have been creating brilliant futures for women and girls, locally in Saratoga, and globally with international support. SISC is part of an international organization with 80,000 members in 120 countries and territories. Soroptimist is committed to improving the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Soroptimist comes from the Latin words “soror” and “optima” meaning Best for Women.

SISC supports a variety of local service projects that reflect a special commitment to the needs and concerns for women and girls. For example, the Club, with Wellspring of Saratoga County, regularly holds an eight week Financial Literacy Course for women surviving domestic violence and other life adversities. We also host an exciting Dream It-Be It program for local high school girls.
