Soroptimist International (SI) Phoenix
Soroptimist International of Phoenix is one of the largest Soroptimist clubs in the world, currently standing at 70 members. The membership representation ranges from presidents and other key executives of private companies to local, state and federal court judges, top local state and federal governmental administrative staff, heads of civic and social service organizations, and a number of attorneys and accountants.
Phoenix club members represent the downtown and central Phoenix communities. Through their service projects the club has been able to generate more than $30,000 a year for women and children in need.
Soroptimist International of Phoenix was chartered in 1936. Our Club, along with other Soroptimist Clubs in the Valley, founded Girls Ranch and Tumbleweed. Soroptimist International of Phoenix (SIP) supports a wide variety of charities helping women and children such as Unlimited Potential and Homeward Bound.
In addition to hands on community service through local projects, each year SIP awards more than $30,000 in grants for programs which further our goals.
SIP membership provides an enriching environment for women to develop friendships and to support each other while experiencing the satisfaction of their collective efforts to improve communities.
The essence of being a Soroptimist can be found in their pledge that outlines the ideals of the organization:
- The Sincerity of Friendship
- The Joy of Achievement
- The Dignity of Service
- The Integrity of Profession
- The Love of Country
