What is Soroptimist International of Davis?

We Invest 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 our passion for helping women and girls who need it most.

Soroptimist Ruby Award

The Soroptimist Ruby Award recognizes women who ­– through professional or personal efforts ­– make extraordinary differences in the lives of women and girls. Honorees inspire and encourage other women, and make a significant impact. The 2022 award, due Feb. 15, comes with a $1,000 grant to the nonprofit of the recipient’s choice. Nominations include a short form and a statement of up to 750 words on why the nominee should receive the award. Women may nominate themselves or another woman (who must sign the form).
