Leading to a Better Community

 We believe that everyone is able to make a positive difference in the world! Altrusa is a great way to do that.
As Altrusans, we join together volunteering our time and talents, and our fundraised dollars, to worthy causes. Individual and club efforts may seem small or sometimes big, but collectively, they all matter.
Working together, we achieve more. Since the 1930's, Altrusa clubs have invited individuals from variety of occupations and backgrounds to become members of Altrusa clubs around the northwest United States and British Columbia. Together, we provide service to our communities, making them better places to live.
We enjoy the friendship, fun and connections that result from planning and conducting service projects that address important community needs and energize our members. We enjoy the fun of fundraising to provide these services and appreciate the community support of our efforts. We enjoy cultivating the growth of caring leaders in our clubs and our district....and we enjoy sharing our wonderful stories with community members, bringing awareness of the tremendous impact of Altrusa in our communities.
Altrusa is a great fit for women and men of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about serving their community. Altrusa is important, but it is just one part of each of our lives and, as such, allows for flexibility of involvement for our members. Filled with engaging opportunities throughout the year, we celebrate Altrusa and one another as we work together to build better communities!
