We are thrilled to be participating in CentreGives 2021, May 11-12, 2021.  Along with other non-profits in our area, Soroptimist of Centre County will reach out for donations to support our mission of helping women and children at risk in our community - at risk from homelessness, illiteracy, lack of access to education and training, from domestic violence and trafficking.  These challenges are great and we work within our community to raise funds to support this mission. 

Welcome to Soroptimist International of Centre County. Our mission is to improve the lives of women and their children, in our local community and throughout the world. For more information about our club and our impact on the community, see our infographic.

Challenging Times - Ongoing commitment to our mission

Our club faces challenges with holding fundraising events at this time, but we've been able to fund the Live Your Dream scholarships for three women in our area and provide support and gift cards to organizations who are helping women and children at risk in our community.  We continue to look for ways to provide support and will let our creativity point us to new ways to raise funds until we can return to our typical fundraisers.
