Current Fundraisers:

Candy Sales:
This fundraiser began in October, 1997 and continues today. Numerous businesses in our local community have allowed us to put a candy box at their business location to help us raise funds for our service fund. Candy bars are $1.00 each and are refilled by members on a regular basis. The businesses are not responsible for any losses in either candy bars or monies. Since 1997, we have sold $100,000 in candy bars with a profit to our club of over $50,000!! All monies raised goes to our service fund and is distributed back to the Greater Willimantic community.


Heart to Heart Fundraising Appeal


Dear Friends of Soroptimist of Willimantic, 

This is the time of year we are usually hard at work preparing for our annual Heart to Heart Ball which we have proudly held for 17 years. Sadly, due to COVID-19, we will not be able to hold our major fundraiser in March. We want to continue our mission of improving the lives of women and girls and cannot do so without the generosity of donors like you. We are asking for your support of our programs.  

The Willimantic Soroptimists have been active here in Eastern Connecticut for 55 years!   Over those years, your generous tax-deductible donations have helped to make our community a better place for women and girls.  You will be recognized for your donation on our website, in the newspaper, and on WILI on March 8, International Women’s Day.  

In our commitment to improving the lives of women and girls, we have used our funds to support the Domestic Violence Program., the Next Step program, the Sexual Assault Crisis Center and to provide Dream Grants to help women receive certifications. Our Live Your Dream Award is given to a woman who is a head of household and needs training or education to improve her life and the lives of her children. Our Dream It Be It conference for girls provides information about safe choices and career opportunities for high school girls from our 7 area high schools. 

On behalf of all our members, as well as the community we serve, we want to personally thank you for your continued support. It is genuinely appreciated. We look forward to seeing you in the future at our community-wide Appreciation Celebration or at the Ball on March 5th, 2022. 

You can make your tax-deductible donation via our Facebook Page or you can complete and mail the Donation Form.
