Soroptimist International is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.

Since 1989, Soroptimist Raleigh, has granted over $57,500 to women in our local communities through the Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women. This awards program assists women who provide the primary financial support for their families. Award recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.

This Fall we will expand our program for teen girls -  Dream It Be It: Career Support for Girls. Dream It, Be It gives girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse.

Our Goal is to Raise $1000 in Support of our Dream Programs.

Here are comments from prior Live Your Dream award recipients that testify to the impact the award has had on their lives:

"I am finally going to graduate in May with my bachelor’s degree.  I could not be more excited.  At that point I will be able to step up as a team lead at the mental health agency where I work.  I appreciate everything Soroptimist has done for Willow and I and the confidence it has brought me." -- 2020 Live Your Dream Award Recipient Lyndsay  

“Earning my bachelor’s degree gives me the opportunity to show my son that life is a journey with surprises but no expiration dates on dreams.” --  2018 Live Your Dream Award Recipient Sabrina

This year has been hard for all of us, but especially for the people we strive to help through our Dream programs. Women and girls need Soroptimist’s support now more than ever. To learn more about Soroptimist Raleigh, visit
