I pledge allegiance to Soroptimist and to the ideals for which it stands: the sincerity of friendship, the joy of achievement, the dignity of service, the integrity of profession, the love of country, I will put forth my greatest effort to promote, uphold and defend these ideals for a larger fellowship in home, in society, in business, for country and for God

”What I like best about being a member of our Soroptimist club is how positive and caring everyone is of each other, as well as the diversity of our group. I am always proud of the support we are able to provide our community and global non-profits and project – it makes me feel that we can all be a part of making a positive impact.”
– Karen Houser, Member since 2005

“I am very excited to be a part of this amazing club of hard-working, caring women. I immediately felt accepted when I joined in 2017 and look forward to seeing everyone at our weekly meetings. You can’t find a group of volunteers with bigger hearts than at SITS!”
– Paula Peterson

“Soroptimist is a great way to stay connected to our community. We hear locals speak about what they’re doing to make Tahoe a better place and how we can help. It’s wonderful!”
– Janna York

“Meeting, working and socializing with our Soroptimist group of women gives me such an appreciation for different personalities, talents, and passions. Every week I am amazed and delighted at who comes forth and shines. I find myself thinking “I love that woman!” Set before this group a common goal and you have a powerful force at work!”
– Jean Bergner

Strengthening and enhancing the lives of women and youth in our community and the world.
