Chartered in 1947, Soroptimist International of Corona is a non-profit 501 (c)(3)* business women’s service organization, which improves the lives of women and girls in our local community and throughout the world.
The name, Soroptimist, means “best for women,” and that’s what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women to be their best. S.I. Corona is part of an international organization that boasts over 90,000 members working within their own communities and globally.
We have seen lives changed for the better through our signature service project, Dreams and Decisions (a workshop for intermediate school girls with emphasis on building self-esteem, mentoring, and education to help prevent teen pregnancy), our Dream It, Believe It, Achieve It Career program for High School girls and our High School Scholarship Program. We participate in the Live Your Dream - Education and Training Award where we provide financial assistance and mentoring for 3 years to a female head of household who is going to school.
We also support "at promise" girls programs at our local schools, Inspire Life Skills Training, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Human Trafficking Intervention programs among others. There are so many ways we are working to improve the lives of women and girls! If you are a woman who shares our goals, we would love to talk with you about becoming an S.I. Corona member. Please Contact Us today for information about our meetings.
Typically, we would be holding our signature fundraiser, Chocolate, Wine and Jazz, this Fall. However, we realize that the everchanging landscape in our State impacts our ability to hold a large gathering.Therefore, we will not be holding the event this year but hope to be back on track for an awesome event next year.
Regardless, the needs of women and girls in our community are growing. We are committed to providing our signature services—and newly identified ones. In addition to our Scholarships, Dreams & Decisions and Live Your Dream programs, we are embarking on a new project to assist struggling families with remote learning for K-12 education.
Rather than focusing on our Signature Fundraising event, we are seeking contributions from our past supporters.
Will you consider contributing to our work in one of our programs?

I pledge allegiance to Soroptimism 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.
