CECR Strategic Plan

Organizations adopt a strategic plan to focus their work and articulate what they are trying to accomplish for those they serve. An African proverb states: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” TOGETHER we want to accomplish something greater than anything we could accomplish on our own as individuals or in our clubs. We want to ensure women and girls can live their dreams!

The Governor and her Board put together a Strategic Plan for the Biennium.  This plan is in turn, shared with the Region’s members and our Headquarters staff.

Here is a great way for you to raise money for Soroptimist without putting a penny out of your own pocket – and by doing something you are already doing every day – use!!

GoodSearch is a new Yahoo-powered search engine that donates 50% of its advertising revenue, about a penny per search, to the user’s favorite charity – ours, of course, is Soroptimist. The pennies add up quickly. Consider that if only 1,000 staff, members and friends search the Internet just twice a day, Soroptimist can earn $7,300 a year – just by doing something we do everyday! If we think bigger – 10,000 users searching twice a day will earn Soroptimist $73,000 a year!!

The founder of GoodSearch has agreed to include only Soroptimist International of the Americas on their list of charities – no individual clubs or regions will be permitted to register because GoodSearch would like to make a bigger impact and that can only be done when a large number of searches are credited. GoodSearch will also promote Soroptimist on their site.

All you have to do to download the GoodSearch toolbar is go to and follow the instructions for downloading the toolbar to your computer. Then every time you search the net, don’t forget to use GoodSearch!

Note:  It is very easy to do, it takes just a few moments to install the toolbar, a moment longer to select Soroptimist as the designated organization, and you are ready to go! And who couldn’t appreciate making money for doing nothing different – I keep hearing cha-ching every time I do a search!
