These annual best practice awards recognize successful club projects that improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment and promote Soroptimist as an organization with that mission.  Categories encompass the four pillars supporting the SIA Strategic Plan: program, membership, fundraising and public awareness.

The deadline to submit an entry to your region chair is September 30. Regions will select region-level recipients. The first place recipient in each of the pillars will compete for the international federation-level awards. Region recipients will be recognized at region conferences.

Region and Federation Finalists


Congratulations to SI Corona for being selected
2018 Fundraising Federation Finalist
"Raising the Bar on Sponsorship"

Since 2002, SI/Corona has hosted their annual Chocolate, Wine and Jazz Festival. This year, the club set an ambitious fundraising goal and saw a net increase of $15,000 from the year prior. They attribute this success as a direct result of focusing on increasing sponsorships through pursuing large grants from community agencies and mailing personalized sponsorship forms to prior sponsors. Their net revenue of $45,420 supports their club projects like their Live Your Dream Award, Dream It, Be It program, Self-esteem workshop, and more! From their proceeds, SI/Corona also donated to Soroptimist International of the Americas through the Club Giving program.
