Doing what’s best for women and children

Soroptimist” is a coined term which means, “Best for Women.” Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra was chartered on Friday, March 4, 1977. Our club is part of the Sierra Nevada Region, which is one of seven regions under the direction of Soroptimist International of the Americas. 

Our Mission Statement

The mission statement of Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra is to “Strengthen and enhance the lives of women and youth in our community and the world.” With our established mission in mind, we participate in programs at our local level based on the specific needs of our community. In addition, our club is mindful of the need to enhance the lives of women and youth throughout the world.                                                                                                             

We enjoy our work, and we enjoy the family we’ve created together. Follow our activities!

What a fun night we had at our 33rd Annual Elegant Evening!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our  fundraiser to enhance the lives of others here and around the world!

Our ONLINE extravaganza was a big success, netting our club $50,000 to continue programs and projects that change the lives of so many. YOU are the reason we can do this. 

We’ve created a Sponsorship program whereby businesses and interested parties can “sponsor” not only our event but also our club in general. They are recognized for their generosity for a full year! Our sponsorship cycle is Nov. 1 – Oct. 31st so if you’re planning your donation/marketing strategies now, consider us!

You can still see our FUN-mercials and SHOW on the Elegant Evening page. Thank you to Tahoe Production House for all their hard work!

What Our Members Say

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

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

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

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.
