Soroptimist International of Eureka
Most service organizations have Identifying Projects that help the organization realize its mission. From Soroptimist International down to the club level, one will find many innovative, heartwarming, and challenging projects to fulfill the Soroptimist mission, which is to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Club projects reflect the interest, background, and skills of the membership, and give a club focus and local notoriety in their communities.

Fellowship is the identifying project of Founder Region. FRF's mission is to advance the status of women through financial support to women in the final phase of their doctoral degree. This project gives grants to selected women attending universities within the bounds of Founder Region. A byproduct of this support is affirmation of the importance of the recipients' work and value as an individual.

2017-2019 SI President’s Appeal, ‘Women, Water and Leadership"
'Women, Water and Leadership' - the Soroptimist International President’s Appeal for the 2017-2019 biennium, will unite Soroptimists across the globe; increasing awareness of the vital role of women as equal partners at all levels of the water sector. The President’s Appeal will support projects that educate, empower and enable women. The Appeal is currently supporting exciting projects in Kenya and Bulgaria, and will in the future support at least three further transformative projects.

It is increasingly accepted that women must play an important role in water management and their position is vital in achieving equitable access to water for all, and for all uses. Despite positive steps taken in past decades, the potential contributions of women in water development remain largely untapped, inhibit­ing women’s economic empowerment. At least five projects will be supported on five continents that educate, empower and enable women and girls to lead in water, embracing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the targets set out in SDG 6: Water and sanitation, SDG 4: Education, and SDG 5: Gender Equality.
