Live Your Dream Awards

Now that your club has selected your Live Your Dream Award recipient, consider if your club can support her beyond the cash award! Additional encouragement for her and her family can show that your club is truly invested in her success.

Soroptimist Celebrating Success Awards

The deadline to submit your club projects for region Soroptimist Celebrating Success Awards will be here before you know it! Be sure to send your submissions to your SCSA region chair by July 1

Investing in Women

Sandra received a Live Your Dream Award and is on the successful path to living her dream and creating a better life for her family, because of contributions made by our generous clubs and donors from around the world. As sexual abuse survivor and mother of four, she has pushed through her obstacles because, “I want to show my children that even through all the messy obstacles it can be done, and goals can be reached”.

There are so many women like Sandra that need our help. Make a Club Giving contribution to help more women overcome challenges and meet their goals.
