Investing in Dreams
Hello! Welcome to our website. Soroptimist International is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls. It was founded in Oakland in 1921 by Violet Richardson, who coined the term “service club.”
SI Davis formed in 1954. We are an active group of professionals, volunteers and retirees dedicated to serving our community year-round through programs, projects … and beer.
