The name, Soroptimist, is coined from the Latin words, soror meaning sister and optima – the best. The translation is “best for women,” and that’s what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.
Founded in 1971, Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner (SITD) provides volunteer services and financial support locally and internationally. We work to improve the lives of women and children (primarily girls), in an atmosphere of support, friendship and fun. We raise funds which are then donated to programs we support and organizations in need.
