We are thrilled to be celebrating our 36th anniversary this month – and we continue to work hard to empower women and girls by supporting access to education and training. To date, we have distributed over $103,000 in grants and awards to local women. In March of 2024, six $2,000 cash awards will be given through Soroptimist’s Live Your Dream Education and Training Awards program to females supporting families while enrolled in post-secondary courses or training programs. 

Linda Drummond, a charter member, has this to say about SI Raleigh: “I am proud to be a founding and still active member of Soroptimist International of Raleigh, and feel we have made a difference in our community over the last 35 years. I have loved helping to identify hard working motivated women heads-of-household who may be struggling to finish their schooling. With our grants and our ongoing mentoring we have helped make a difference in their lives and the lives of their children.”
