Meat Raffle Fundraiser
Soroptimist International of Kansas City has partnered with the KC Cattle Company for a Meat Raffle!
Congratulations to our raffle winners
Jane Zelazny-Belz and Chad Siemon!
Because of your support we are able to financially help women who are the primary source of financial support for their families, achieve their educational goals through our Live Your Dreams Awards program.
Please bookmark our website so you can easily learn about our upcoming fundraisers, events, and what we are doing to support women in the KC community.
We also invite you to consider becoming a member of our women’s service organization. Through Soroptimist membership, you will have the opportunity to realize personal fulfillment with dedicated and like minded women, by blending your service concerns with social and business interests.
KC Soroptimists grant special COVID relief awards.
The Soroptimist International of Kansas City Club, through its Foundation, recently made a total of $15,000 available to assist local 501c3 organizations that focus on services and programs for women and girls, that were negatively impacted by Covid-19. Our club received twelve applications. The requests were varied and each was worthy. However, funds were limited and we had to make some difficult decisions. Grants were made to Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPA), Mother’s Refuge, Sisters In Christ, Baby Grace Ministry, The Salvation Army, Safehome, Shepherd’s Center, and Flourish Furnishings.
We wish these organizations well and hope they apply for our annual Service Objectives awards that will be given out in February 2022. Applications and funding criteria will be available on this website in October, 2021.
Soroptimist International of Kansas City is dedicated to supporting our community, meeting other great women, and having a fun time doing it. Our club gives to the community through hands-on volunteering, awards and recognition programs, and generous grants. Our membership is made up of women of all ages and ethnic groups, from all walks of life and cultures, in diverse businesses and professions.
Our name, Soroptimist, means “best for women,” and that’s what we strive to achieve. Our programs focus on helping local women, and women around the world achieve their dreams.
We invite you to consider becoming a member of our women’s service organization. Through Soroptimist membership, you will have the opportunity to realize personal fulfillment by blending your service concerns with social and business interests. You can be the best by achieving your full potential.
Soroptimists are truly women at their best: professional and executive women of all ages, career stages, cultures and ethnic groups who are known leaders in their fields.
