Altrusa International District Two

Leading to a better community

We believe that everyone is able to make a positive difference to the world around them. We can each volunteer our time, or donate our money, towards worthy causes. Our individual efforts are small, but they matter.

We can achieve even more when we bring people together. For over 100 years Altrusa clubs have collected members from varying occupations and lifestyles, all sharing an interest in community service.

We enjoy the friendship, fun and satisfaction that comes from working together for the benefit of others. Each club develops a program that is tailored to local needs, undertaking a variety of hands-on service and fundraising projects each year. One of our shared goals as an organization is to improve literacy, which we believe is the key to opportunity.

Through Altrusa activities we develop our leadership skills in a supportive environment. We welcome new ideas and aim to provide enough flexibility so that our members can give their time in a way that works for them.

Why choose Altrusa?

  • I love Altrusa because of the focus on the PEOPLE we serve in our community. It is not about things or what we are doing, it is about the PEOPLE we are helping.

    Jennifer Hepner McNichol, Reading-Berks, PA

  • Because of my club members and because we reach so many people in the projects we choose to work with.

    Rita Diane McCulloch, Capital City, VA

  • Both my mother and my aunt were Soroptimists, but they never reached out to me. Altrusa did and, as a writer, I definitely approved of their mission to bring literacy to everyone.
