About our club

Chartered on April 22, 1983, Soroptimist International of Moreno Valley is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, Inc.® Golden West Region.  Loosely translated, the name Soroptimist (pronounced  suh-rop-tuh-mist) means "best for women," and that's what Soroptimists aim to be:  women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.  Soroptimist is particularly concerned with providing women and girls access to education, as this is the most effective path to empower women and girls to reach their full potential.  A 501(c)(3) organization that relies on charitable donations to support its programs, Soroptimist also powers®, an online community that offers volunteer opportunities in support of women and girls.

Our club meets the first four Wednesdays from September through June for a one-hour breakfast meeting beginning at 7:00 a.m. at Brandon's Diner, located at 24626 Sunnymead Blvd., Moreno Valley, CA. 
(Virtual meetings are held via ZOOM at 8:30 a.m. when in-person meetings are not possible due to recommended COVID-19 guidelines.) The first scheduled Wednesday each month is a closed board meeting.  Agenda for meetings on subsequent Wednesdays include business meetings, guest speakers, and training to  help us achieve Soroptimist International's goal to transform the lives and status of women and girls through education, empowerment and enabling opportunities.


Annual club dues are $130, which include International, Federation and Regional dues, Club Liability Insurance, and Founders’ Pennies. A one-time $25 new member fee covers the Soroptimist pin, badge, and new member packet.
Monthly club dues are $35, which covers the cost of breakfast at the morning meetings for members.
