SUPPORT Our Soroptimist Club

Since 1944, Soroptimist International of Greater Bremerton Area has been improving the lives of women and girls in our local community and throughout the world. Our programs bring about fundamental change for women through economic empowerment, ending violence, and advancing gender equity. There are a number of ways to support our efforts:

Volunteer
Throughout the year, we host a number of events and participate in several community service projects and are always in need of volunteer support. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us to be placed on our call list and a member of our board will be in touch with you. High school and college students wishing to fulfill their community service requirement for credit are encouraged to contact us as well.

Fundraising
During the year, we host several events and undertake projects aimed at raising funds so our club may continue to support scholarships, awards and other Soroptimist projects that help women and girls in our community become their best. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Annual Dinner Auction - Last year, early October 2015, we hosted a Trivia Night at the Bremerton Eagles Club ... and what a "brainy" blast that was. We enjoyed a silent auction, a taco bar, and a several rounds of trivia. We invited everyone to come "test their knowledge" and, in doing so, raised  $6,500 to fund the "Live Your Dream" Education and Training Awards and the many programs and projects benefiting women and girls in our community.
  • Selling Platinum Cards to support club operating costs. Sold over 140 cards for 2015-2016 year, raising $1,050.
  • Kitsap Great Give - a day (24-hours) of online giving; raised $2,500 in community support during the 2016 Great Give in May.
  • Small Fundraisers and Charitable Gifts - raised over $3,200
  • Happy Bucks - conducted at regularly held program and membership meetings to raise operating funds. Our members offer monetary donations (usually $1 to $2) to share a happy moment in their life or in the lives of their friends or family.

Donate
In addition to member dues and our fundraising efforts, we rely on contributions from our members, friends, and the general public to help fund vital programs that improve the quality of life for women and girls -- locally and throughout the world.
