Soroptimist International of Davis is an active group of business and professional women who donate their time and resources to improving our community through service to others. We are involved in hands-on projects throughout the community, year-round.

As a club, our major interests are:

  • Education of women and girls, particularly career development and support
  • Women's shelters and crisis nurseries
  • Emancipated and former foster youths
  • Sex trafficking and human trafficking
  • A whole lot more!

SI Davis supports local nonprofits through fundraisers and events. It operates the beer and wine booth on Wednesday evenings at the Davis Farmers Market. It features beer from Sudwerk Brewing Co., and wine from Putah Creek, Berryessa Gap, Heringer Estates and Sundstrom Hill wineries.

Proceeds from this booth help the organization fund its sizable grant awards program, distributed annually to worthy community organizations. Past grant recipients include:

  • Davis Community Meals
  • Empower Yolo
  • Yolo Crisis Nursery
  • CASA
  • Grace in Action 
  • Suicide Prevention
  • CommuniCare
  • Yolo Library
  • Yolo Children's Fund - HELP Program
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Yolo Family Service
  • Yolo Family Resource
  • Many others

Soroptimist International of Davis is one of two Soroptimist clubs in town; the other is Soroptimist International of Greater Davis. The latter club formed as a response to those who couldn't meet during lunchtimes; they meet in the evenings.
