We have partnered with the SAVE of Essex County- Family Service League, Grandma K.A.R.E.S., Marylawn of the Oranges Academy, National Council-Jewish Women, St. Vincent Academy and many other organizations in Essex County that support women and girls. Our most recent partners include St. Barnabas Medical Center and the YWCA Eastern Union County.

Clara Ramer Live Your Dream Award

This award program assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects.  Many recipients have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, and drug and alcohol abuse.  The awards may be used to offset any costs associated with efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare and transportation.

The Ruby Award

We have honored many professional women over the years who are dedicated to mentoring young women and to making a positive difference in the lives of women and girls. This honor, the Ruby Award, is named after the first federation President of Soroptimist International, Ms. Ruby Lee Minar. Our recipients are from all disciplines including business administration, education, health/medical, social services, journalism.

The Violet Richardson Award

Soroptimist International’s founders and our first President, Ms. Violet Richardson Ward, pioneered the volunteer work that we do, recognizing that women must support and uplift one another. This is a recognition program for young women ages 14-17 who are engaged in volunteer action within their communities or schools.
