Welcome to Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay

Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay is an organization of women that help other women and girls. Our local club serves our community through hands on projects and awards for women and girls. These awards include recognition to local women who have made a difference in their professional, business, or volunteer work in helping women and girls, and we provide scholarships and grants to both women and girls who are working to educate themselves and need assistance.

Soroptimist is an international volunteer service organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and throughout the world.  About 95,000 Soroptimists in more than 120 countries and territories contribute their time and financial support to community-based projects benefiting women and girls. We are committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realize aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide

The name, Soroptimist means “best for women,” and that is what the organization strives to achieve.  Soroptimists are women at their best working to help other women to be their best.
