A project of LEXINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Soroptimist's strive to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.
The name, Soroptimist, means "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. As a volunteer organization of professional women we feel uniquely qualified to help women and girls live their dreams.
The Soroptomist Club statrted as a business women's group and has been active in Lexington since the 1970's. Original members, Margaret Wortman and Pauline Dodson continue to be involved in the organization. The orgainzation currently has more than 20 members.
The Lexington Soroptomist Club has projects that raise money to support scholarships to Lexington High School girls, as well as support civic projects like the local Fourth of July Fireworks show.
The projects of the Soroptomist Club usually run for a 10-year period.
Proceeds from the projects are used to civic projects and well as scholarships. It is the goal of the organization to increase the number of scholarships given and have at least one be given to a non-traditional female student. Your donation to the Soroptomist Club of Lexington will help us reach our goals!
